Most visitors would have gone to Titlis while in Engelberg. My suggestion if you are staying here longer than 1 day – come here at Furenalp.
In Engelberg, there are three cable cars to reach the mountain peaks : Titlis, Brunni and then there is Furenalp. Furenalp is 1850 meters above sea level. It is a place for family fun, away from the crowd, hustle and bustle of busy city life.
Winter Fun in Furenalp
– 1 km run for Sledging (free usage of sleighs)
– 1.5 km track for Hiking and Snowshoeing
For any novice sleigh riders, this is the place to get your feet wet, so to speak. Just follow the mostly straight track from the restaurant. The slopes are gentle and there are wooden seats to rest your feet, catch your breath and soak in the moment. To the left, we watched several people climbed up to Mt Wissberg, which stands at 2627 meters above sea level. Then, they skied down to the alpine hut below.
To get here : Take Bus No. 2 from the train station, Titlis station and other various bus stops. To reach Engelberg, take the 50 minutes train journey from Luzern. From Zurich Airport, it takes about 2 hours to reach Luzern.
