Overview

Travel to the charming city of Lucerne and visit Mt Titlis in the famous Swiss Alps! After a scenic coach ride to Lucerne, a guide will take you on a brief tour of the city before leaving you to explore. Once you've had some time to relax, you'll board a cable car to 3000-metre-tall Mt Titlis.

Itinerary

You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach from the Sihlquai bus parking near Zurich Main Train Station. Accompanied by a multi-lingual guide speaking English, Spanish and German, you will journey via Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake Lucerne to the city of Lucerne. It is the capital of the Canton of Lucerne and an important tourist destination due to its location on the shore of Lake Lucerne within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi.

You will be taken on a short city tour and shown the main sites, including a visit to the Lion Monument. The famous carving of a dying lion by Bertel Thorvaldsen, a renowned Danish/Icelandic sculptor, commemorates the hundreds of Swiss guards who were massacred during the French Revolution in 1792. After visiting the Lion Monument, you will have about an hour at leisure to explore the place on your own.

Further on, proceed to Engelberg, a famous ski resort (3028 metres) and take a 45-minute revolving cable-car ride to Mount Titlis. Mount Titlis is a glacier paradise at a height of 3000 metres and offers an amazing snow and ice experience on the highest viewpoint in Central Switzerland. After reaching the top, you can enjoy a variety of attractions and the magnificent scenery of the Alps. There are restaurants, a sun terrace, Ice Grotto and much more. You can also board the Ice Flyer chairlift and enjoy sliding over the snow or use the Fun Lift for sledging.

After a great time in the snow, you will return to Zurich. The tour ends at the Sihlquai bus parking (which is near Zurich main train station).
