Buochserhorn, CH

The summit of the Buochserhorn rises free at the end of the mountain chain on the eastern side of the Engelberg valley. This location allows a unique panoramic view of the mountains and far out into the midlands.


I recommend, you first take the cable car from Niederrickenbach train station up to Maria-Rickenbach. An ascent up to the Buochserhorn poses no great difficulties and the path begins at the Kapellplatz in Maria-Rickenbach. In the back of this mountain village mainly consisting of a monestary for nuns, jagged rock bastions pile up. Behind these craggy cliffs, the gorgeous Musenalp hides with its lush mountain pastures. Before going there, you may want to conquer the Buochserhorn though:
