At Engelberg railway station, the free local bus is available for winter sports enthusiasts and takes them to the various starting points. For cross-country skiers, the stop to remember is called "Sportingpark". It can also be reached on foot in 5 minutes from the station, and is the starting point for the 25-kilometre-long valley cross-country ski run. In addition to a cloakroom, it also offers shower and catering facilities. Ready for the varied cross-country trail with various routes in the Engelberg Valley? Whether classic or skating, sporty or cosy, the tracks through the valley offer something for everyone. At first you glide flat, only slightly up the Engelberger Aa to the golf course. There you will also find the first stop for refreshments, the Restaurant Eienwäldli, where you can fortify yourself for the ascent to Herrenrüti. Arriving on Herrenrüti, the view of the village compensates for the effort. This is also the highest point of the cross-country trail from where it only goes downhill back to Engelberg. The second stop is the Restaurant Wasserfall, which is also right next to the trail and is ideal for a refreshment stop. A cross-country pass is required for the cross-country ski runs in Engelberg. Guests staying overnight use the cross-country ski runs with the guest card free of charge.

Author’s recommendation

The valley trail is divided into several short sections, which can also be run separately. A cross-country trail map with all possibilities is available in the Sportingpark or in the Tourist Center.
