The papeterie and bookshop on Dorfstrasse 9 in Engelberg was founded by Robert Hess in 1888 and provided Engelberg and its guests with stationary goods, books, sports photography and souvenirs. The business was an instant success, survived two world wars and came to stay in the Hess family for two generations.
In 1971 the Höchli family took over the well established business and also kept it running in the family for two generations with Alex Höchli being in charge since 1992. Almost 30 years and an internet boom later the time for a new generation had come. Only a couple of years away from retirement, Alex handed over the responsibility for the renowned shop on Dorfstrasse to the Wetterblad family in 2019.
The shop was traditionally renovated and Roastery Engelberg moved in creating the unique blend of coffee roaster, stationary shop and bookstore under one roof. Today Roastery | Papeterie Engelberg on Dorfstrasse 9 is the relaxed heart of all operations and a place where you can browse through nostalgic books, shop high quality stationary all whilst enjoying a cup of deliciously prepared coffee.
