Engelberg

Obwalden

Spend a few wonderful days and nights in the heart of the largest skiing and hiking region in Central Switzerland! Our family and youth hostel – a rustic mountain house in traditional Swiss style – is just a ten-minute walk from the centre of Engelberg village. From here you can explore the monastery village, enjoy the long skiing season on the Titlis or plan a variety of summer activities. You can choose from fun in the snow at the Glacier Park or on the Ice Flyer, action on the Aa Gorge experience trail, the Grotzliweg path or the marmot hike, a thrilling ride down into the valley on a scooter bike, or a visit to the local show dairy.
