A bit of a trek here for a day trip from our base in Vitznau but well worth it - Engelberg literally means "Mount of Angels" and it certainly is a heavenly place to visit with the huge Benedictine monastery dominating the town and surrounded by wonderful alpine peaks. Mt Titlis is the largest peak here in central Switzerland and its one of those "must do" mountain trips. I had been here before with VT'er Rebibi but with cloudy weather we just saw the town and the cheese factory in the monastery. This time I was back here with hubby and the sun was shinning so we headed for the mountains this time.
The glacier and scenery and splendid hiking trails only whetted our appeptite more (or was it the cheese!) for a future visit, perhaps a longer stay. There's certainly more to explore than just the monastery and the big 4-stage cable-car trip to Titlis.
- Pros:Titlis and the cheese making monastery, hiking
- In a nutshell:makes for a great day out
The town of Engelberg - literrally meaning Mount of Angels - is worth a visit in its own right. Good for shopping and... more travel advice
From Trubsee you can hike up to the Joch Pass - part of a very popular hike or you can cheat like us and glide up there... more travel advice
