The summit of the Titlis and its cableway terminus lie at an altitude of 3,020 m – high enough to guarantee snow all year round.
The monastery village of Engelberg is no more than a 45-minute ride by car or public transport from Lucerne. From there, the 8-seater Titlis Xpress gondola cableway takes you straight to the Stand terminus, with the option of boarding or alighting at Trüb along the way. You then change to the Titlis Rotair, the aerial cableway featuring the world’s first rotating cable cars, which whisk you to your glacier experience. The journey is as much fun as the arrival – the cable cars rotate 360 degrees in the five minutes they take to reach the upper terminus. The views in all directions are stunning and peppered with snow-covered peaks, steep rocky flanks and deep crevasses.
The fun continues the moment you have solid ground under your feet again. Discover the Glacier Cave and admire the solid ice and beautiful ice sculptures. Or grab a snow toy such as an inflated rubber ring and race down the slope. The Ice Flyer chairlift offers an altogether smoother experience: you sit comfortably while gliding over the glacier.
The Titlis Cliff Walk gives you a queasy feeling as you make your way across the suspension bridge above a 500-metre drop at an altitude of 3,041 metres. Rounding off the snow experience is a 40-minute walk on the secured footpath to Stotzig Egg.
Then again, Engelberg-Titlis offers more than brief moments of enjoyment – in winter, you could stay for a whole day of winter sports, such as skiing. And in summer, there is kick scooter riding, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking and countless other activities.
