Quick access from Zürich airport and abundant lodgings make Engelberg great for short breaks (for which we find the towny nature of the resort is worth putting up with). And Titlis is a compelling mountain, particularly for experts. The resort was named after the 12th-century Benedictine monastery (Engelberg means the mountain of the angel) that dominates the town as you look down from the lifts.
