From Hotel Bänklialp you hike uphill via the Bänklialp path through the forest to Gerschnialp, then continue on the road to Gerschnialp station, along the winter hiking trail through the forest and across the valley floor at the foot of the Bitzistock to Untertrübsee.

Author’s recommendation

The Restaurant Untertrübsee is known for its meringues and is therefore also known by locals and Engelberg lovers as the Meringue curve.
