Hi mike9999in,

Here's a quotation from the Titlis site (www.titlis.ch):


Car / Coach

Motorway A2 (Basel - Gotthard), take exit Stans-Süd and follow the all-year open main road 20 km to Engelberg, valley station and parking lots of Titlis Cableways at the village entrance on the right. 1,5 hours from Zurich, Berne and Basel, 30 minutes from Lucerne.

Daily escorted excursions to Mt. Titlis. Departure from Zurich at 10 a.m. and from Lucerne at 11.15 a.m.. Board a modern coach and drive to Engelberg, then continue the journey with 3 different cablecars to Mount Titlis (3'020 m / 10'000 ft).

Booking at the Tourist Office or in your hotel in Zurich or Lucerne or contact Meier Tours, Phone ++41 (0) 1 383 78 78.

Best of Switzerland Tours, Phone ++41 (0) 1 710 50 50.

Daily escorted excursions to Mt. Titlis. Departure from Zurich at 9.30 a.m. and from Lucerne at 12.10 a.m..


International rail connections to Zurich and Lucerne. From Lucerne with the "Zentralbahn" within one hour to Engelberg. Zurich - Lucerne (45 minutes) hourly connections. Lucerne - Engelberg 1 hour by train (leaving every hour from Lucerne and from Engelberg).


Basically, it is about 2h from Zurich to Engelberg by train, 1h30 by car. At Engleberg, you take the cable car up to Titlis.

Good luck!

Hi everybody, Sorry I also have a question about Mt. Titlis?

Does it pay to take a tour from Lucern or do it on your own (just two adults - no kids in our party). Also what to wear in Mid August? Thanks
