Expat Life

On top of Mt. Titlis (3020 metres above sea level)

Experience new glacial heights and spectacular panoramic views from the top of Mt.Titlis, 3,020 metres above sea level. Take the Titlis Xpress cable car from Engelberg to Stand station in around 25 minutes, and from Strand, you can then hop on the Titlis Rotair, which will carry you up to the top of Titlis in a matter of minutes. 

TITLIS Cliff Walk

The Titlis Cliff Walk is an experience like no other. This spectacular suspension bridge high on the summit is 3,041 metres above sea level, 500 metres off the ground and 150 heart-pounding steps long, making it the highest suspension bridge in Europe. 

A route leads you through the glacier cave via an underground tunnel and onto the viewing platform at the south wall window when you reach the summit. The one-metre-wide suspension bridge then stretches to the Ice Flyer glacier chair lift station. Gaze into the abyss below and soak up the breathtaking views! An adventure you will never forget.

Glacier Cave

A magical world of ice awaits you in the glacier cave. Basked in a subtle turquoise light, the air here is so cold you will see tiny white clouds from your breath. This mystical 5,000-year-old cave is what forms the frosty heart of Titlis, with a 150-metre long walkway that descends 10 metres below the glacier’s surface. 

With easy access from the Titlis Mountain Station, this is an incredible experience not to miss.

Trübsee (middle station 1800 metres above sea level)

Many years ago, a muleteer called Engelbert and his pack mule Schmuggli would often undertake the strenuous route from Engelberg over the Jochpass to Engstlenalp. They would hide their smuggled goods in different places around Trübsee, which you can now hunt for on the trail of Schmuggli. At each of the six stations around Trübsee lake, you will find an object with a letter, try and solve the puzzle to win a prize!
