Bubble Suite Engstlenalp


Enjoy the relaxing quiet, the relaxing murmur of the mountain stream and the clear mountain air and be very close to nature.

A stay in the forest gives fresh energy for body and soul. A night in the forest is a unique experience for all the senses; look into the treetops, observe the forest dwellers, smell the scent of the forest, hear the chirping of the birds and feel the pleasant wind on your skin.

The nearby Englstenalp with the romantic Engstlensee is one of the best-known places of power in Switzerland. This unique mountain lake invites you to linger, walk or take a refreshing swim. The area offers numerous activities and impressive sights. We have created an overview for you under “Frequently Asked Questions”.

The Bubble Suite is particularly suitable for a romantic stay and for everyone who wants to leave their everyday life behind and clear their heads.

The Wagenkehr restaurant is located at the beginning of a private road that leads to Engstlenalp. A parking lot is available.

At the end of the Gental in the Bernese Oberland lies the Engstlenalp with the unique Engstlensee, which borders the cantons of Obwalden and Nidwalden. This wild alpine valley is surrounded by an impressive mountain backdrop and numerous waterfalls. The Engstlenalp offers some hiking opportunities and is also interesting for mountain bikers. In summer, for example, the Engstlensee can be hiked as part of the 4-lake high-altitude hike between Melchsee-Frutt and Engelberg.
