    Only thing to do in Engelberg if the weather is bad. We had a private tour of the monastery and church. The most visually interesting thing about the monastery is the collection of woodcarvings done b...  more »

  • Interesting to watch cheese making the glass room. Also the cheese tasting was very good. I bought some very good cheeses.

Where to stay in Engelberg

Way up high in the Alpine town of Engelberg lies a small cluster of mid-range hotels where you can recharge after a long day of skiing. As the town is only accessible by train, proximity to the train station is key, as you'll want to avoid walking long distances with luggage. If you're working with a tighter budget, look for the handful of pensions in the city with more affordable rates, though prices are relatively steep regardless of where you stay.
