Overview

The Titlis is a mountain peak in central Switzerland, which is to be reached by a revolving cable car. At the height of 3032 m, you can enjoy snow and the beautiful view.

Apart from the breathtaking panorama, there awaits other highlights: various restaurants with sun terraces, the Glacier cave, the Titlis Cliff Walk- Europe’s highest suspension footbridge- and of course snow and ice. You can literally fly over the Titlis glacier to the Glacier Park by riding on the glacier chairlift “Ice Flyer”.

 

 

History

The first trek of Titlis was probably dated back in the year 1739 by Ignaz Hess, J. E. Waser and two other men from Engelberg. The first written record of trek is found in the Engelberger Dokumente. They mention a group of four men that reached the summit in 1744.

The first ski ascent of Titlis was made by Joseph Kuster and Willi Amrhein in 21 January 1904.

The cable car to Klein Titlis (3,032 m) was inaugurated in March 1967.

The Titlis Cliff Walk opened to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the Engelberg-Gerschnialp cableway in December 2012.

 

 

Preparation for Titlis

Check the weather forecast as there's no point in going up if the Titlis is covered in clouds.

Dress in multiple thinner layers so that you can adapt to the different temperatures throughout the day.

The Titlis station is located at an altitude of 3032 m.  Anyone can suffer from (light) altitude sickness from about 2000 m. Usually it helps to take things slow and sit down for a while. Special precautions apply to children under 2 years old, as well as people who are pregnant or in poor health: before visiting areas over 2500 m, you'd better consult your doctor. In most cases though, staying at such altitudes for just a few hours is no problem.

Activities at Titlis

  • You can enjoy the amazing view of a high alpine world of rocks and snow.
  • The 'Ice Flyer' chairlift allows you to 'fly' over the glacier and see it up close. The fare is not included in standard cable car tickets to the Titlis. The lift takes you to the Glacier Park, where you can enjoy the snow using snow tubes, sledges and more. This is the place to go to for guaranteed snow. There is often snow at other places at the top too, but not always as the climate is getting warmer. In winter, the park is located at the mid station Trübsee instead.
  • The Glacier Cave allows you to take a walk into the tunnel in the ice of the glacier.
  • The Titlis Cliff Walk is a spectacular suspension bridge that allows you to see the mountains from a different perspective.
  • You can visit several shops and restaurants.
  • You can choose from several hiking trails that start or end at the mid station of the cable car, Trübsee. You can walk to the Trübsee and combine that with a visit to the Titlis.
  • In Summer, there are several sporty activities near Trübsee. You can enjoy the spectacular zipline or rent a rowing boat to explore the Trübsee, the lake near the mid station. Booking in advance is recommended.
