The picturesque village of Engelberg located in the Uri Alps was originally built around a medieval monastery. Indeed Engelberg Abbey still functions today and remains at the heart of the community, hosting recitals in the evenings.
Engelberg makes for a fantastic central base to explore nearby Mount Titlis, a foreboding 3,200-metre peak perfect for high-speed downhill skiing. Make your way to the summit to take the opportunity of walking through a glacier and crossing the highest suspension bridge in Europe.
