Beckenried is a municipality in the canton of Nidwalden in Switzerland.

The first settlers in what would become Beckried were from Alamanni tribes that moved into the area over 2000 years ago.[1] During the Middle Ages the region was part of extensive estates that were shared between Engelberg Abbey, Murbach-Lucerne and Steinen, Switzerland. The two tower houses in the village (named: Retschrieden and Isenringen) were built in the 13th century for two local, influential families. In 1262 the village is mentioned in an agreement over a nearby pasture.[1] In 1314 it is mentioned as Beggenriet.[2]
