#2 of 12 in Things to do in Engelberg
Titlis is a mountain of the Uri Alps, located on the border between the cantons of Obwalden and Berne. At above sea level, it is the highest summit of the range north of the Susten Pass, between the Bernese Oberland and Central Switzerland. It is mainly accessed from Engelberg (Obwalden) on the north side and is famous as the site of the world's first rotating cable car. The cable car system connects Engelberg (996m) to the summit of Klein Titlis (3028m) through the three stages of Gerschnialp (1262m), Trübsee (1796m) and Stand (2428m).The last part of cable car way leads above the glacier. At Klein Titlis, it is possible to visit an illuminated glacier cave from an entrance within the cable-car station, which also includes shops and restaurants. The Titlis Cliff Walk, the highest elevation suspension bridge in Europe, opened in December 2012, giving views across the Alps.GeographyTitlis straddles the border between Obwalden and Berne. The main summit of Titlis (sometimes distinguished by the name Gross Titlis) and Klein Titlis are both located between the municipalities of Engelberg on the north and Gadmen on the south. The Titlis massif is also partially located in Nidwalden, where the highest point of that canton is found: the Rotstöckli (2,901 m). Titlis itself is the highest point in Obwalden and in the valley of Engelberg. East of Titlis is the Grassen, where the borders between the cantons of Obwalden, Berne and Uri converge. The geographical centre of Switzerland is situated about 15 kilometers west of the mountain.

Where to stay in Engelberg

Way up high in the Alpine town of Engelberg lies a small cluster of mid-range hotels where you can recharge after a long day of skiing. As the town is only accessible by train, proximity to the train station is key, as you'll want to avoid walking long distances with luggage. If you're working with a tighter budget, look for the handful of pensions in the city with more affordable rates, though prices are relatively steep regardless of where you stay.
