Approx. 9½ hoursStart time
Make your way to the Sihlquai Coach Parking (or Bus Terminal), near Zurich main train station. This bus parking can also be reached by tram / streetcar number 4 / 6 / 13. The closest tram stop is “Sihlquai / HB”.
Same as the start point
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 either to Lion Monument or photo stop at Lake Lucerne. 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). Now travel time from the Engelberg to Stand station will be cut in half due to a new introduced ‘TITLIS Xpress’; the 8-seater gondola. You will have to change only once at the station 'Stand' to reach Mt. Titlis. The new Gondolas are equipped with generous panoramic windows and a modern levelled easy walk-in entry coupled with a cabin height of 2.1 meters will ensure a smooth and comfortable entry and exit. Waiting time at the Valley Station will be significantly reduced; journey from Engelberg to the station Stand takes just 16 minutes and thus more time can be spent on Mt. Titlis.
Mount Titlis is a glacier paradise at a height of 4000 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).
Please call the local activity operator at least 24 hours prior to start of the tour to confirm all details.
There should be minimum 5 passengers for guaranteed departure. Should this number not be met for your chosen date you will be offered an alternative date or a full refund.
During winters if a mountain has to close the cable cars/ cogwheel trains because of bad weather, there are two possible situations:
If the news is received BEFORE the coach has left for the tour, your options are:
• Postpone the tour to another day
• Change the booking to another mountain (generally no refund because the tour is fully guided)
• Change the booking to a day in Lucerne (in this case difference will be refunded)
• Not taking any tour and getting full refund
If the news is received AFTER the coach has already left, your options are:
•Change the booking and going to another mountain (generally no refund, because the tour is fully guided)
•Change the booking to a day in Lucerne (in this case refund will be paid, only the difference)
Aerial cable car would undergo scheduled maintenance from 4 Nov 19 till 15 Nov
