From 18 October to 14 November 2021, the Lucerne-Lucerne Allmend/Messe railway line will be closed due to expansion work. Rail replacement buses will operate.
Start is at the manor house Grafenort right next to the train station Grafenort. On a gravel road it goes first still flat before the way leads into a rather wide hiking trail to Obermatt. Passing the small reservoir Obermatt after that the steeper ascent comes to Engelberg. The tour is a very good alternative to the main road and leads mostly through the forest.
Engelberg’s bike shops have a wide range of bikes and cycling accessories for sale or hire. It’s also worth stopping by if your bike is in need of repairs or replacement parts.
