From a small shop in the Dorfstrasse flows an intense and unusual fragrance. Is that coffee? Yes. Sophia and her brother Oskar have been running a small coffee roasting business here since 2015. In the mornings they roast, pack and deliver. In the afternoons, the two open the doors of their shop and advise their customers during a coffee. Their products carry creative names like : Sunny Side, Dark Side or Blue Bird. Here is guaranteed a nice gift!
In addition, they also offer courses for small groups in their shop - an ideal alternative for a less active daily program.
So close and sometimes so far away. The Fürenalp somehow towers over Engelberg. At the end of a side valley, you take the small gondola and a few minutes later you arrive at 1850 meters above sea level. Surrounded of an imposing mountain panorama there is the small restaurant of Josefa and Urs Portmann. On their terrace you can enjoy the sun, food, drink and "let Lord be a good man". During summer months you can also reach the restaurant via a spectacular via ferrata or you can take a hiking trail.
A place of longing. From mid-May to mid-October, the mini-restaurant is open. It is about 7 km from Engelberg and is located in the canton of Uri - but this has to do with Engelberg as an enclaves. In Alpenrösli traditional Swiss cuisine is cooked and served, the Rösti are absolutely awesome! It is wonderfully leisurely and guarantees a peaceful evening.
A true backflash. With Angie the owner and sister of Marlies- you will find great games for young and old. And the best: here you get a full consultation. As soon as you enter the shop, you are set to slow motion, you take your time, browse and get detailed information on all articles. Angie knows every game she sells and what she recommends. Maybe she does not have every article like an online-shop, but there's still something fitting.
Chefs from Engelberg will transform the barbecue area of the Fürenalp cable car into an outdoor kitchen for gourmets.
At Food Unplugged everything revolves around the original preparation of food, i.e. without electricity and gas. Original, authentic, regional and with lots of passion, the kitchen artists will conjure up fantastic creations on the plate and spoil you.

Sedate? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Anyone who associates it with leisurely senior sports has never covered the narrow skis for a few kilometers. 35 kilometers of trails are available in Engelberg. There are tracks in the village, on Gerschni and Trübsee groomed and even a lit night trail at SportingPark. Just try it, you will rarely find such incredibly good conditions. The ski schools offer courses for different levels. The finest equipment is available at sportsPARTNERshop. Top advice, rental and sale.
By the way, with the guest card of the Hotel Bellevue-Terminus you save the trail fee.
Thursdays in August, probably the most beautiful concert series in Central Switzerland takes place: FERRY JAM.
Our friend Mani and his gang had the great idea to charter the "car-ferry Tellsprung" and let the best bands play on it. While the ferry chugs across the lake, guests are entertained on the "most exclusive stage" in central Switzerland. In addition there are incredible sunsets, drinks at the bar and an unforgettable evening.
Absolutely reserve tickets in advance, seats are limited.
