Can you guess why Engelberg is one of my favorite ski resorts? Compared to other places in Switzerland, Engelberg is the destination of choice for so many of our clients’ trips each year because it is made for short ski breaks.
Short transfers and great flight options into Zurich – as well as being good value – make it one our favourite weekend resorts.
It’s so effective as a weekend option that it takes just an hour and 15 minutes to drive from Zurich airport, or two hours by train.
