The Basics

There are several options when it comes to ascending Mt. Titlis. You can purchase a cable car ticket and make your own way to Engelberg, then set off on a journey to the summit independently. Alternatively, organized tours depart from Zurich and Lucerne, and include transportation to and from Engelberg. During winter, many guided tours incorporate visits to nearby well-known sights such as the Lion Monument and offer the option to add on a supervised snow sports experience, like tubing or skiing on beginner-friendly slopes. In the warmer months, guided hiking tours are available.

From Zurich - Engelberg, Cheese, Trübsee, and Mt. Titlis Discovery Private Tour
Outstanding tour! We had a family group whose ages were from 12-75; and everyone was well accommodated. The guide (Jonas) was knowledgable, friendly, professional & took great care to ensure everyone had a great time. The support staff (Lina) reached out to us before hand with great tips for our time in Zurich, as well to make sure we were well prepared for our day trip. Yes - you will ride the train & it is totally worth it! Our guide made it timed perfectly & worth the authentic experience. As we had a little time (& energy) left in our day, our guide encouraged a stop on our return in Lucerne for a quick walk about. We are looking forward to using this tour company in a future trip! THANK YOU!

From Zurich - Engelberg, Cheese, Trübsee, and Mt. Titlis Discovery Private Tour
We had an amazing tour with Lena (spelling?) on September 6th. She met us at the airport, gave us an overview of the day and some tips (changing shoes). It is great to have a guide that is knowledgeable and can adjust plans as needed. Any time something came up, Lena would quickly adjust. For example, some persons in the party had bad knees so she helped shorten some routes. She also gave great information without sounding like it was a lecture or a manual. She was engaging with everyone and made sure everyone was part of the conversation (and gave us time to just take everything in. Engelberg was a cute town with great cheese. Mount Titlis had spectacular views and Lucerne was picturesque.

When to Get There

Mt. Titlis is breathtaking year-round. Go between December and March if you plan on skiing. Early mornings are quietest, and the best views are during clear weather—though when that will be is anyone’s guess. Note that the Titlis Rotair cableway closes for maintenance work for a couple of weeks around November.

What to Expect at the Summit Station

There is no shortage of fun to be had at the Mt. Titlis summit station. You’ll find several restaurants to choose from, a glacier cave with carved ice structures inside, and the nerve-testing Cliff Walk, one of Europe’s highest suspension bridges. Next to the Cliff Walk is the Ice Flyer chairlift, which carries passengers over the frozen crevasses of the glacier to Glacier Park, where you can go tubing—racing down the slopes on a rubber tire.
