    Titlis Glacier Cave - Titlis Gletschergrotte

    by globetrott Updated Dec 29, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Titlis Gletschergrotte / Titlis Glacier Cave might be a great experience for tourists who are not familiar with ice and snow. You can enter there free of charge and walk through the cold corridors, but in contrary to other such places the floor is totally covered by a special carpet that is at no place slippery at all. (e.g. In the icecave of Jungfrau you really have to be careful not to slip!)

    Truebsee

    Truebsee in a hight of 1800 meters above sea-level is one of the stations that you will pass by when taking the cablecars up to Mount Titlis. You can take some nice hiking-tours around the station Truebsee and the lake with the same name. The cablecar to Truebsee is included as well in the tell-ticket.
    In Winter this will be a good place for skiing,but in summer you have to go further up in order to find some snow during summertime.

    "Stand" in a hight of 2450 meters

    Stand in a hight of 2450 meters above sealevel is the last but one station of the cablecar-system taking you up to Mount Titlis. The restaurant in this station was closed in august 2009, obviously it is used only in wintertime. In Stand you will finally change to the Rotair-cablecar that has a floor turning around while going up. This does not really make sense, but of course it is a good way to advertise this cablecar. In fact you have to adjust your hands on the handrail every few seconds and you cannot lean at the walls.

    Grund

    Grund is the name of another station of the cablecar-system taking you up to Mount Titlis.This is the last station that is included in the tell-ticket and from there you can take some great hikes around the lake and there are several restaurants as well at this lake. The cablecar TO Grund has lots of small cabins going every 2 minutes and you can get your own cabin as well. The Cablecar UPwards from Grund is a large cabin for maybe 40 people, leaving only every half hour or so.

    Gondola from Untertrübsee to Obertrübsee

    This tiny gondola starts just a short distance from the Restaurant Untertrübsee and whisks you to the Obertrübsee , a short and scenic walk from the Trübsee . The gondola can supposedly hold up to 8 people (with a basket in front for your backpacks). The gondola runs every 30 minutes, but will run more frequently if there are enough people. Cost for a one-way trip is CHF 12.40, cash only. You get a 50% discount with an Engelberg Guestcard, but not Swisspass.

    Furenalp

    view towards Furenalp

    I wish we had time to go to Furenalp on the gondola from Engelberg too - the scenery and the hiking here looks very appealing according to the website - something for another visit perhaps.
