The hike leads over meadows with unique alpine flowers and past numerous alpine buildings. The Engelberg monastery has mined bricks for its buildings from the slate quarry. Can you see the traces of mining? The nearby hydroelectric power station produces electricity for the Engelberg monastery. The monks used to run the plant themselves and cleaned the small lake together every summer. Stop at the start/finish of the hike at Engelberg's highest waterfall. With its 60 m drop height, the Tätschbachfall is better known as the "Waterfall", an impressive natural spectacle and a wonderful place to recharge your batteries. Do you hear the different sounds of its noise? The Restaurant Wasserfall is located at the foot of the falls.
