Today Adelbodern, like so many towns and villages in the region, has turned to tourism as its main income earner. It is a popular ski resort, particularly for vacationing families. The place is also ideal for hiking and mountain biking during summer.
About 4 km outside the village is Engstligen Falls, a spectacular waterfall. You can reach it by car. People who are hiking the area can head for the 2,613 m (8,573 ft) Ammertenspitz.
