Engelberg Things to Do: 41 reviews and 148 photos

The benedictinian monastery of Engelberg has a long tradition lasting back to the year 1120 and today there are only about 40 monks left, who mainly work in the monastery-school.
As an ordinary tourist you might want to take a walk through the monastery garden, take a look into the basilika and go to their great restaurant and cheese-showroom that inludes a shop (see my restaurant-tips!)
Maybe you are less lucky with the weather then you might also considder to take a guided tour through the monastery and its library.

Directions: The monastery is east of the trainstation, just 5 minutes to walk, you will pass by when walking to Brunni-cablecar,

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
