Biking on the sunny side of Engelberg is possible on the route to the Brunnihütte SAC. The highlight of this tour is the view of the Titlis. From nowhere else you can see the glacier as good as from there. At the end of the tour the Herzlisee with the Kitzelpfad waits for tired biker feet.

From Engelberg railway station, the starting point of the bike tour to the Brunnihütte, take the village road past the Tourist Center (stop recommended for the last good tips) towards the monastery. After the Viktoriagärtli, the park on the left, turn left onto Schwandstrasse. From here the paved road climbs pleasantly between the houses of Engelberg. Once you have reached the Hotel Waldegg, it is worth taking a first look over the village and towards Titlis. Continue on the same road through the forest until you see the mountain inn Schwand. A short stop for refreshments is recommended here before the further ascent. If you have missed the breather in the Schwand and have provisions with you, there is a nice opportunity for a stop at the picnic spot Spisboden. Once you reach the Ristis mountain lodge, it becomes more challenging and the surface changes from asphalt to gravel. The natural road meanders at the foot of the Rigidalstock up to the Rigidalalp. The small, rustic alp has only a few seats and yet a break is always worthwhile. The Engelberg local mountain Hahnen can rarely be admired from so close. If the photos are in the box, you have to climb up and pedal hard again. It only takes a short moment until the Brunnihütte SAC with the waving Swiss flag comes into sight. Arrived at destination - take off your shoes and head for the tickle path. Around the Herzlisee, the Kneipp path quickly makes you forget your painful feet. Back to the valley and to the starting point of the tour, the same route is followed.
