Engelberg is not just a winter resort – it’s a winter paradise. The town offers such a variety of things to do that you will be tempted to extend your stay long enough to try everything. The two sides of the valley couldn’t be more different and they provide pure enjoyment to both athletes and those who like to take it slower.
Engelberg: the largest – and as the locals like to boast – probably also the most beautiful ski area in central Switzerland. Spread over an altitude of 2000 meters, there is room for snowboarding, skiing and sledding, a varied winter program to make your holiday exciting. The long, snowy winter begins as early as October and lasts into May. The 35 km of cross-country ski trails meandering through the lovely Engelberg area make cross-country skiing a fantastic experience!
Fresh wind in your hair, glistening snow and sunshine – this is what you expect from sledding fun in Engelberg. Try one – or all – of the three different sledding runs with a total length of 7 km. On Fridays and Saturdays between Christmas and early March the sledding runs are also open at night for a fast downhill run. If you prefer a more quite pace, explore the area around Engelberg on 53 km sign-posted winter hiking trails.
This charming hotel lies on a south-facing hillside above the Engelberg and enjoys fabulous views out over the village. Majestic mountains and a ski jump are to be found in the area surrounding the hotel and the nearest bus stop is approximately 500 m away. The centre of Engelberg may be reached in just 2 minutes by making use of the hotel’s nostalgic funicular. This pleasant 5-story hotel comprises a total of 170 rooms and features a spacious foyer with a 24-hour reception desk, a lift, Internet access and an in-house nightclub. There is also a cosy bar and a restaurant offering some excellent cuisine available to guests and those arriving by car may make use of the hotel car park. The welcoming, tastefully furnished rooms each come with an en suite bathroom with a shower, a hairdryer, a direct dial telephone, satellite/ cable TV, a radio and a hire safe. Leisure options include table tennis and a spa area with a solarium, a sauna and steam baths.
The rooms vary in size from small to medium. Some twin rooms have the beds in line rather than side by side due to the shape of the room. Rooms have modern furniture and are in good condition, as are the bathrooms. Most rooms have balconies with views over Engelberg and the surrounding mountains.
