The start of this walk is at the Engelberg train station. Past  Kurpark, you walk through the Dorfstrasse all the way straight to the monastery. At the monastery church you walk up to the cemetery and across the Klostermatte to St. Anna. There you cross the bridge and walk along the road to the restaurant Schweizerhaus. Afterwards, the path leads you across the wide Matte to the waterfall, and there you will already find the destination.
