Mt. Titlis, Switzerland

Surrounding mountains of Engelberg, Switzerland.

From someone who grew up with only sunny and rainy weather, I must admit that this is one of the highlights of our European tour. Titlis is a mountain in Central Switzerland, to be reached by a revolving cable car. At 3032 masl, you can enjoy the eternal snow and the beautiful views of the Swiss alps.

Entrance to the cable car going up Mt. Titlis.

Love adventure? Then this one's for you! Cable car ride going to the top takes approximately 20-25 minutes. You have 3 cable car rides in store for you, and each one is different - a small one, a big one, and a revolving one! How they have managed to put an observatory at the top is a marvel, but you need not worry as the entire seemingly breathtaking facilities are safe and sound.

The Titlis Rotair gondola rotates its way up towards the snow-covered summit of Mt. Titlis. It is the world's first revolving gondola that can accommodate up to 50 pax if I'm not mistaken and transports you from the middle station going to the mountain station at 3,032 meters above sea-level. The gondola revolves 360 degrees during the five-minute trip, treating you to idyllic panoramic views of steep rock faces, deep crevasses and distant snow-covered mountain peaks.

This was taken at the top most floor of the mountain station where you can find souvenir shops and restaurants. :) Dining at the top isn't cheap by the way. Meals range from €10-50 so make sure you bring extra money.

And voilaaaaa! Groufie with the gang at the top of Mt. Titlis. ;) We were blessed because weather was great so we had a clear view of the surrounding alps.

We couldn't stop taking selfies because the views were breathtaking.

Here's a clearer shot of the alps using my Fujifilm X-M1.

There were a few more activities besides the one posted like the cliff walk, glacier cave, ice flyer etc. I wanted to do all those but then again we lacked time. :( If may option bumalik, babalik ako kaya don't miss this tour when going to Switzerland! ;) Anyway, a roundtrip cable car ride costs €80 per pax.


  1. Hi, I came across your blog while searching for info on the Titlis tour. I'll be going to lucerne this April and was thinking of joining a day tour to Titlis but the advisory on the online booking form says that Glacier Park is "closed till further notice". Would you happen to know if the snow tubing activity is being offered at an alternative station there? Also, do they serve steak at the Panorama Restaurant? Thanks, and enjoy the rest of your European adventure! 😊

    1. Hey Leo! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not exactly sure since we did not try any activities during our Titlis tour except for enjoying the views and of course having lunch. I don't exactly remember where we had lunch coz there's I think 3-4 restos up in the mountain. One of them served steak because I ordered one that cost me around €40 including one soda. That's probably one of the most expensive steaks I've ever had in my life. Haha.

  2. Oh that's actually a fair price considering the prices in Switzerland... good to know. Well I hope you have more fun in your future travels. I am looking forward to reading about your adventures and your recommendations on a good steakhouse or gourmet restaurant in the cities you visit :)

    1. If you love steaks, best place to go is Australia. And when in Sydney, try Rockpool. Their steak prices range from AUD50-200. Love it!
