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.

Our tour guide Anije was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The trip was well organised and we really enjoyed the stop in Lucerne as a chance to see another Swiss town besides Zurich.

Mt. Titlis Snow Experience Day from Zurich
This was a great trip! The only change I would make would be to allow more time at the mountain. I did the snow experience At a very beginner's course. Perfect for children and inexperienced adults, so I spent a good bit of my mountain time with that. Afterwards, I felt a bit rushed to visit the other levels. Besides that, it was great! The Mt. Titlis staff was very helpful. I never skied before and I was moving through poles after 10 mins of instruction. The views were amazing!!! The tour guide was very informative on the bus ride to the mountain. It was a great experience!

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.
