Culinary tip on the mountain

Bärghuis Jochpass, Engelberg
On the Jochpass you can enjoy the best "Raspberry Gschlabber", raspberries with quark cream. The main course is preceded by various Swiss delicacies such as the typical Alpine bratwurst. Here you can experience pure nature and action right on your doorstep: a via ferrata and great bike trails.

Turn-by-turn directions

This bike tour starts at Grafenort railway station. The cycle path is on a side road, parallel to the Engelberger Aa. On the way we encounter two small cable cars, namely the Bielen cable car and the Diegisbalm cable car. At the Hof Neufallenbach kiosk in Grafenort there are many local organic products. In Wolfenschiessen we can take a look at what is probably the oldest house in the Nidwalden region, the "Hechhuis", from the outside.
