Engelberg, Switzerland
and trip extension to Brussels and Bruges, Belgium
January 25 - February 4, 2025


We're happy to announce that the 2025 Ski With Charlie European trip will be to one of the most famous and storied ski centers in all of Europe: Engelberg, Switzerland. The vast ski area, centered on Mount Titlis, features incredible skiing for all levels of ability. The high altitude (3,280 feet in the village, and 10,000 feet to the top of Mount Titlis ski area) guarantees good snow. The alpine village of Engelberg is a delight, and our hotel is right in the middle of it.


The beautiful Hotel Terrace proudly presides over the village of Engelberg. Built in the Art Nouveau style, the hotel will transport you back to the era of elegant travel on the continent. Enjoy alpine elegance with panoramic views over the village and the surrounding mountain landscape. The 110 cozy rooms not only provide comfort but also unforgettable mountain moments. After a day of skiing, unwind in the new Panorama Sauna or treat yourself to a gin at the Porticos Bar. The central location allows you to explore charming Engelberg on foot, and the Titlis valley station is easily accessible with the complimentary ski bus. Standard Rooms have been upgraded to "Comfort Rooms."

Your tour price INCLUDES daily skiing in Engelberg! The resort offers skiing on both sides of its valley. The smaller, sunnier Brunni area is served by a cable-car from just outside town and offers a selection of mostly short, tree-lined intermediate pistes. On the other side of the valley, Engelberg’s larger Titlis area is also served by lifts from just outside town. This is where you will find the bulk of the more challenging terrain (both on and off-piste) that the resort is famous for. The Titlis area can be split into two distinct sectors, the first being Trübsee-Stand-Titlis which has the glacier, much of the best off-piste and a vertical drop of nearly 2000m. The second Jochpass sector is smaller, but also of interest to both on and off-piste skiers.
Everyone talks about ski holidays, but there is much more to Engelberg than just ski lifts and ski slopes. Here you can experience real winter holidays and put together a varied program every day, This includes strolling the village, cross country skiing, tubing, sledging, and even curling. Hop aboard the train for a quick (25 minute) trip to the beautiful city of Lucerne. Other in-reach destinations include Switzerland's capital, Bern, and Zurich.


Brussels is the capital of Belgium, Flanders and Europe. The Medieval Grand-Place, is indeed grand, with many 17th-century buildings and daily flower markets. Reopened in 2006, the Atomium, Brussels' Eiffel Tower, provides great views, inside and out. Architecture fans should visit Musee Horta, home of Belgian master architect Victor Horta. St. Gery's clubs and bars are packed year-round. Seafood eateries abound in Ste. Catherine. Included in your visit to Brussels is a 3 hour guided tour with a friendly local guide. Your hotel for three nights is the four-star Novatel Brussels Off Grand Place, just steps from what is described as the most beautiful town square in the world. This location is just a few easy steps to many restaurants and bars. You can walk to many major sites and attractions in just 15 minutes, including famous museums, the Midi Station, Parc de Bruxelles, Royal Palace and Place du Grand Sablon.

Also included in your tour price is a day-long excursion, with guide, to the medieval city of Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium. It is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg Square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Market Square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.

Besides breakfast every morning at the Hotel Novatel Brussels Off Grand Place, you will be treated to a group dinner the first night at a restaurant in Brussels.
