"Grotzli" are not strange, eerie figures, but are called young trees in the Engelberg dialect, in particular small spruces. They shape our alpine landscape.

If you take your steps on the nature trail, you will be amazed at the wonders of nature. The trail revolves around history, rocks, flora and fauna and alpine farming. The pleasant walkable circular path in the midst of the Engelberg High Alps combines active recreation with the opportunity to learn many interesting things. The easy walk along the nature trail and the variety of water, animals and flowers make the trail interesting for children and adults alike.
