At the foot of Mount Titlis, in the picturesque Urner Alps, Engelberg, named after the “Mountain of Angels”, lies in the heart of Switzerland. At just 35km from Lucerne, and 90km from Zurich, this Obwalden village was built around an historic Benedictine Monastery, Engelberg-Titlis, and is framed by breath-taking Alpine scenes. Take advantage of ski, snow, and cross-country activities, or take the chance to hop on a revolving cable car to the summit of the Titlis, which at 3,238 m is the highest glacier excursion destination (and home to illuminated glacier caves). The famous Titlis Cliff Walk - the highest suspension bridge in Europe - also offers jaw-dropping vistas across the Alps.
