This stage of the Alpine Cheese Trail is particularly family-friendly: two alpine cheese dairies can be visited at the same time and combined with a cable car and toboggan run ride.

From the start point at the Abbey’s artisan cheese dairy in Engelberg it is just a stone’s throw to the valley station of the Brunnibahn cableway, which takes you up to Ristis. Plenty of fun awaits children up here, with a playground and summer toboggan run. There are also barbecue grills and picnic spots for the whole family to enjoy. When you finally tear yourself away, it is just a short walk underneath the Ristis-Brunni cableway to the Hüttismatt cheese dairy, where you can purchase delicious Alpine cheese. The return walk follows the same route – along a tarmac road once you have passed the chairlift. But first you should pop it at the Langenboden cheese dairy, which also makes and sells first-class Alpine cheese. That will set you up well for the return journey downhill via Bränd, Spisboden, Heg, Bergli, Zelgli and Bockti. This route is along narrow paths that are mostly car-free, or along neighbourhood roads with little traffic. Once you pass the swimming pool, it is just a few metres to the railway station or back to the start point.


Please note that depending on weather conditions (snow conditions) not all alpine cheese dairies are occupied in June.

Author’s recommendation

Those taking children along should plan in plenty of time for the playground at Ristis.
