At the beginning and end of this panoramic hike we take the cable car to Bannalp or from Ristis down to Engelberg. But not all differences in altitude have been overcome yet: 561 metres of ascent and 671 metres of descent have to be mastered on the well-secured mountain path - a unique alpine experience for (almost) everyone.

Destination

Ristis (Engelberg)

Turn-by-turn directions

At the beginning and end of this panoramic hike we take the cable cars to Bannalp or from Ristis down to Engelberg.  On the Alp Oberfeld, in the friendly "Bergbeizli", own products such as goat cheese, meat and yoghurts are served. And towards the end of the tour, tired hikers can enjoy a meal in the Brunnihütte. On the Kneipp path "Kitzelpfad" around the Härzlisee lake, you wade - alternately in the water and on the shore - on bog, gravel, wood chips and stones and enjoy the tingling feeling of natural relaxation. A short descent to Ristis follows (chairlift as an alternative). The cable car takes us to Engelberg.
