Engstligenalp is a large Alpine plateau whose landscape makes it an extremely exciting bouldering area in summer. A boulder is a large piece of rock. Instead of using ropes and hooks, boulder climbing takes place on rocks at jumping height from the ground. To make it even safer, there’s a mat to cushion and protect your landing when you jump. Uniquely
for Switzerland, you can also do a boulder assault course, combining hiking and boulder climbing on Engstligenalp to create an all-round experience in the open air.
Engstligenalp offers eight different boulder courses. They are rated differently and alongside some quite gentle boulders there are also some real tough ones! Several of the courses can be attempted by all the family as they are on a flat flowery meadow crossed by small streams... a paradise for children!
Equipment can be hired from the Engstligenalp Mountain Hotel, open from mid-June to mid-October.
