This hike takes you from Grafenort over the nidwalden mountains and past Lutersee to Engelberg.
The start of this tour is at the Grafenort train station. First you walk on a flat forest path along the Engelberger Aa to the valley station of the Buiräbähnli, which takes you to Rugisbalm. From here you can use another Bähnli and thus spare your legs for the further ascent. After you have covered the first 800 meters of altitude by the rail, you will continue to the Lutersee with your own muscle power. Once at the Seeli, we recommend a picnic or you descend a bit in the direction of Zingelalp, where a wonderful resting place with a great view and a cool drink awaits you. The further descent leads along a narrow forest path, which again requires some concentration, down into the Arnibach gorge. A farm glacé from the Hoflädeli Aeschboden will sweeten the last part of the way to Engelberg train station.
The Zingel hike is also the first stage of the Buirebähnli Safari.
