Engstligenalp raclette hut – a traditional mountain hut is transformed into a cosy restaurant

In autumn, once the cows have left their summer pastures, the traditional Alpine hut belonging to the Aellig family and situated on Engstligenalp above Adelboden is transformed into a raclette hut. Within the blink of an eye, the cowshed is transformed into a cosy restaurant. The inviting atmosphere and the tasty raclette, which is produced in the farmhouse, provide a perfect excuse to relax and enjoy.

Mountain bikes

These are not permitted on Engstligenalp, as it is a nature reserve.


Climb the Wildstrubel in the company of a mountain guide. Following a 4- to 5-hour ascent over cliffs and glaciers, you will reach the summit at 3,243 metres above sea level and can drink in the spectacular view, which extends out over Valais and as far as the Jura mountains.

“Chäligang” via ferrata

The easy “Chäligang” via ferrata runs along the beautiful waterfalls from Adelboden up to Engstligenalp.

Summer family hit

Benefit from the family hit offer of Bergbahnen Engstligenalp AG and pay only CHF 56.00 for the whole family’s return ride on the aerial cableway (2 adults, max. 4 children). The Globi cableway is a particularly exciting attraction for families.
