Make a holiday rental villa or chalet in Engelberg, Switzerland your home away from home

The Engelberg ski resort is a magnificent year round destination, offering one of the biggest vertical range in the Alps. With excellent sporting options throughout all four seasons, including an excellent glacier for skiing, a holiday rental in Engelberg delivers guaranteed snow, vibrant après ski and enough testing skiing and snowboarding to keep even the hardiest of snow sports enthusiasts happy all year round. An Engelberg ski pass gives you access to 82km of downhill pistes, 41km of cross-country skiing trails and a huge snow park.

Things to do in Engelberg, Switzerland

The Engelberg ski resort has the second best snow record in the whole of the Alps, and from its location right in the very heart of Switzerland, the skiing is quite phenomenal. The skiing available on an Engelberg ski pass is not for the faint hearted. The majority of the skiing in the area is classified as black runs, suitable for both skiers and snowboarders, especially the runs accessed by the first revolving gondola, the Rotair, which gives you an unrivalled view of the absolutely staggering scenery, hopefully helping to take your mind off the fearsome pistes you are about to tackle! Anyone wishing to really get the most out of their Engelberg ski pass, the infamous Laub off-piste area is one of the best in Switzerland, and there are plenty of local guides waiting to take you. If the close season seems almost unbearable, a holiday rental chalet in Engelberg can quench your thirst for skiing. There is an excellent glacier on Mount Titlis, perfect for year round skiing.

During the summer months, the Engelberg ski resort doesn’t slow down. Skiers still flock to the glacier to ski in the sun, and walkers, mountain bikers and rock climbers snap up self catering Engelberg accommodation in order to head out into the mountains. The walking and climbing is absolutely sensational in Engelberg, with some of the finest trails taking you past the famous Benedictine Monastery, which is well worth a visit in itself. Mountain bikes can be hired from the train station, and the Engelberg Sports Complex organised adventure sports from bungee jumping to canyoning, abseiling to white water rafting.

Places to visit on holiday to Engelberg, Switzerland

Whether you visit the Engelberg ski resort in summer or in winter, the short trip from an Engelberg property rental to Lake Lucerne is truly worth it. The lake is impossibly picturesque, with charming Alpine villages dotting the shores, between the glass like surface of the lake and the snow capped peaks that surround Lake Lucerne. There is little as romantic as taking one of the regular paddle steamers across the lake, and certainly nothing compares to diner in a lake side restaurant.

Weather in Engelberg, Switzerland

Although winter is obviously cold in the Engelberg ski resort, summer conditions may come as a surprise. Temperatures are blissfully warm, with daily temperatures in July and August reaching the mid 20’s (˚C) on most days. Due to the altitude, conditions can be unpredictable, but for the majority of the time, the summer sun shines, making the whole landscape awash with colour.

Travel to Engelberg, Switzerland

Zurich Airport (ZRH) is just and hour and a half from Engelberg. There are frequent direct flights from the UK, provided by Aer Lingus and British Airways. The trip from the airport to a holiday rental chalet in Engelberg can be completed on public transport, as there is an excellent train network requiring a change in Lucerne.

A little piece of heaven on earth.....

5 of 5
We stayed in the apartment in the first week of December in 2007... it is THE best place we have ever stayed. The views are breathtaking, and seemed to get more breathtaking by the day. Every morning that I woke up I would jump straight out of bed and open up the shutters to get a glimpse of the view. We wanted for nothing, everything was there and more. The apartment was clean, spotless and looked after. The real fire was comforting and serene after a day out skiing and the cold. And the hot tub was amazing! We also had lots and lots of snow, it didn't stop snowing for a good few days and was beautiful to watch the heavy snow through the panoramic windows whilst warming our toes in front of the fire. I cannot wait to go back to this apartment... and we most definitely will! The chalet owners are really friendly and helpful too.
