Summer & Autumn




1. Robinson Playground Grotzenwäldli

A short walk from the Brunni valley station leads you to the Robinson playground in the Engelberg district of Horbis. With its many activities around the small lake, it leaves hardly anything to be desired. The little ones become pirates and explorers on the island. You will find a slide, bridges and rafts. For refreshment before the next lake battle, several barbecue areas are available. Grill wood can be used for a fee.

A play paradise on its own: handicrafts, romping around and playing with like-minded people are just as much a part of the programme as the fun work in the children’s kitchen, where young guests can bake muffins and biscuits.
