Titlis has everything you’d hope for in a first-class alpine ski destination: wide terrain, traditional mountain huts, beautiful scenery, top-notch off-piste, lots of traditions and an authentic village at the base of the mountain. Jaws drop once you arrive at Titlis Rotair, the world’s first rotating chairlift, where you can catch a panoramic view of the region’s beautiful landscapes of crevasses, glaciers and snow-capped peaks. The skiable area runs across 50 miles of slopes, but there is plenty of room for fun in the snow, such as tubing, slides and electric snowmobiles rides and other winter sports, like cross-country skiing. In addition to skiing, you can climb to the top of the 9,800-foot mountain to venture across the Titlis Cliff Walk, the highest suspension bridge in Europe that offers the most spectacular views in the entire region. In the center of Engelberg, alpine chalets coexist with Belle Epoque structures and modern buildings.

WHAT TO DO BEYOND SKIING
Walk across the 9000-foot-high Cliff Walk, the highest suspension bridge in Europe that sits atop of Mount Titlis and offers a breathtaking alpine panorama along its 1/8 mile length. Don’t miss the Glacier Cave, a 500-foot long cavern for ice runners sunken 65 feet below ground. Snowmobiling on Truebsee, sledding, tubing, ice skating...the list goes on!
In the village, head to the Alpenclub restaurant for authentic Swiss cuisine, Yucatan for the best burgers in town and the Schweizerhaus Restaurant for fine dining. For the foodies, try Gao's Restaurant for Chinese specialties or Spice Bazaar Restaurant’s authentic Indian cuisine. On the mountain, head to Lake Torbido for the best pizza. At the top of the Cliff Walk, enjoy the unparalleled view from the Panorama restaurant, where you will feel like you are floating over the Swiss Alps while you relish regional specialties and renowned wines.
