Beautiful but strenuous winter hiking trail to the mountain restaurant Flüehmatt with a unique view of Engelberg and the Titlis.
The winter hiking trail starts at Engelberg railway station and leads along the village road past the Tourist Information to Engelberg Monastery. From there you take the prepared stone staircase which begins to the left of the monastery church. Once at the top, follow a left turn on the road before the path branches off to the right. From there it's steep. Up to the top station of the Klostermatte ski lift the path is even wider and runs across an open field. The snow-covered fir trees and the crunching of the snow under your shoes make you forget the difference in altitude and when you reach the top, the view over Engelberg almost takes your breath away. But now you have earned a break. The cosy wooden mountain restaurant Flühmatt invites you to linger. Back to the valley you follow the same path.
The mountain restaurant is known for its genuine Engelberger Älplermagronen - so take some hunger with you on your winter hiking trip.
