Benediktusweg

  • Benediktusweg

The Benedictine Way connects Engelberg Abbey with the Maria-Rickenbach convent. The trail takes you from Engelberg Abbey to Ristis, past Walenalp, and down to Oberrickenbach. The route then continues on to Brändlen, Alpboden and finally Niederrickenbach, where you can take the cableway back down into the valley. The route takes hikers on a journey through very varied scenery and provides a wonderful panoramic view of the valley and mountains.

The section from Brändlen to Mittlist Hütte is closed until October 15. 2018 every day (except Sundays). A bypass is possible via Ober Sack - Gigi - Wasserboden (+540 vertical meters).
