Ski resort for rent Central Swiss resort of Engelberg up for grabs for a limited period

Tourism bosses in Engelberg have come up with a novel way to fight the effects of the strong Swiss franc. They've put their village up for rent. Executives with cash to burn can take over the resort for a limited period, hold parties and concerts, change street names, use their own special currency in shops, and even book ski slopes for their exclusive use.
