The highest mountain in Central Switzerland

Discover the highest mountain in Central Switzerland and touch the snow and the glaciers even in summer time.

The Rotair Gondola from Titlis Stand to the top of Mount Titlis is the first revolving gondola. Whilst ascending on the top of Mount Titlis, the gondola revolves completely 360 degrees around in five min. so that you have a full panoramic view.

Walk through a 150 m walkway 20 meters inside of the glacier and experience the constant cold conditions of minus 1, 5 degrees.

Take 150 steps to cross the spectaculars suspension bridge 500 meters off the ground bringing you to the Ice Flyer where you have an impressive view to the glacier world with the crevasses.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jutta is a very, very nice lady and an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgable about her country and was enjoyable to be around. Mt. Titlis was breathtaking! Everyone in our group was wowed and in awe at the scenery and it was the first time any of us had walked through a glacier. A real must do if you are in Lucerne.
