From Engelberg railway station, follow the Dorfstrasse in the direction of the monastery. After the Tourist Information turn left into Schwandstrasse. From there the path rises steadily. About 60 m after the Hotel Waldegg take the road to the right in the direction of Fellenrüti - Bergli. The Hotel Waldegg is also the last opportunity for a stop for refreshments until you reach your destination on Ristis. At the end of the road, at the bus stop Fellenrüti, the path turns sharply left into the forest. After the first long bend the forest clears and the view to the next intermediate destination, the Bergli becomes clear. Keep left away from the road in the direction of Spisboden. Above the farm you reach the road again. Here you have made a good half of the way. After a few bends and metres in height you will finally reach the Ristis. The view in the direction of Titlis and Engelberg is magnificent and makes you forget your tired legs. After a well-deserved break on the sun terrace of the Ristis mountain restaurant, take the cable car down to the valley. The free sports bus takes you back to the station and the starting point of the winter hike.

Author’s recommendation

If the Schwandstrasse is too steep for you, you can take the free sports bus from Engelberg station and start the winter hike from Fellenrüti.
