Staeuber Waterfall hike
Imposing cable car ride from Engelberg to the Fuerenalp, 5 restaurants on the trail, 1 waterfall, amazing show of flowers
From Fürenalp mountain station via Aebnet - Stäuber (Waterfall) - Stäfeli - Alpenrösli to Engelberg/Fürenalp valley station.
You start with an imposing cable car ride to the Fürenalp. At the restaurant Fuerenalp you may enjoy some local specialities. The hike begins in a south easterly direction towards Stäuber. Amid alpine roses and lushmeadows the path descends slightly and leads you to the Äbnet alp. Sitting on the little sun terrace you can enjoy fresh alp cheese or some regional speciality. Soon later you pass the alpine restaurant Hobiel. From here you have the choice of continuing the walk via Blackenalp – Surenen Pass or Stäuber – Stäfeli.
If you prefer a shortcut, take the cable car Äbnet – Stäfeli. From Stäfeli you can follow the course of the Stierenbach on the left or right bank. At the restaurant Stäfeli there are excellent fruit tarts to be had, and in restaurant Alpenrösli a homemade Rösti (grated potato dish) awaits the hungry traveller.
