Ascent Trip Report

Near the summit is the restaurant Engelberg, which is only open Sundays, but does an excellent brunch. See http://www.derengelberg.ch/index.cfm. It is accessible from either Rothacker to the south or Dulliken to the north on recently metalled roads.

5 minutes are enough to stroll from the restaurant past the comms tower and climb the little mound on top, which covers an underground reservoir.
