Titlis Bridge, Engelberg

(4.7/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Feels quite cool to be suspended up on the highest suspension bridge. Could be a little scary for small children as the bridge shakes.  more »
