Whether you hike up the path or first take the Fürenalp cable car and hike into the valley - you decide. Regardless of which variant you choose, the hike is unique over alpine meadows, along the Engelbergeraa and past the impressive and legendary Stäuber waterfall. During the alpine summer, various pubs invite you to stay or you can visit the alpine cheese dairy Surenen on Aebnet.

On the hike you will be accompanied by rushing mountain streams that plunge from the Grassengrat into the deep falls. You will walk along the Engelbergeraa, past the Stäuber waterfall, over fragrant alpine meadows with unique flowers and, during the alpine summer, a mountain restaurant with delicious food will tempt you again and again. The hike is part of the Alpine Cheese Trail and leads past the Stäfeli and Surenen Alpine cheese dairy. Glide over the rugged rock face with the Fürenalp cable car. Let your soul dangle on the panoramic terrace of Fürenalp and feast on unique views of the majestic mountain world.

Author’s recommendation

If you want to shorten the hike, it is advisable to use the circular route Fürenalp and Aebnet Bahn.
