Top destination around Engelberg - Engelberg

According to an old legend, the history of Engelberg started together with a Benedictine monastery that was built here. Once, a local man, Konrad von Sellenbüren, saw an angel in his dream. The angel ordered him to build a sacred shrine in Ochsen. The man started building a monastery, which was completed in the 20s of the 12th century. When the sacred building was ready, two abbots saw an omen. They saw a choir of angels standing on the mountain not far from the monastery. The angels were praising God.

After this omen, the area got a new name “the Mountain of Angels” that sounds like Engelberg in the local language. People still believe in this legend and retell it to the next generations. When taking a stroll in Engelberg, curious tourists might notice symbols that remind of the old legend. There are many statues and figures of angels on buildings and houses.
