Activities & attractions

As the largest ski resort in Central Switzerland, Engelberg has plenty of slopes for both experienced and inexperienced skiers and snowboarders, as well as a wide range of off-piste attractions.


The Wissigstock is a very popular skiing peak that is easy to reach and offers magnificent 360-degree views. Most ski tours to the Wissigstock start from the SAC Rugghubel mountain hut, but it can also be reached from the Bannalp by crossing the Bannalper Schonegg and the Rot Grätli. A great starting point is the Gitschenenhöreli hut, with the ascent leading through the Schlossberg Pass and the Engelberg Pass.
