Short alpine tour near Engelberg with beautiful views of Titlis and Spannort (T4). Optional return route with many places to stop for refreshments through the watery Surenental valley (T2).

The name of the Wissberg is easy to interpret: The brightly shining limestone of this peak stands in stark contrast to the green alpine slopes in Engelbergertal and Surenental. The summit offers a beautiful view of the glaciated mountain range on the other side of the valley. From the Fürenalp mountain station, the Wissberg can be reached in a hike of just under two hours. In the upper half, movement experience in steep scree is required. After the tour, you can stop for a bite to eat on the panorama terrace of Fürenalp and then take the cable car back, or you can hike back in a wide arc through the water-rich Surenental. Four alpine inns along the way invite you to stop for a bite to eat. You can shorten the loop by taking the cable car from the Surenen alp inn/cheese dairy (Äbnet) to Stäfeli.
