We traveled from Lucerne to Engelberg, we then had a cable car ride to Trubsee, followed by another cable car to Stand and then the revolving Titlis rotair cablecar up to the summit of Mt. Titlis. The Glacier cave and the ice flyer chairlift at the Mt Titlis Glacier Park were added attractions that we saw on Mt. Titlis.
We were first there in August of 1999.
Getting to Lucerne, Switzerland:
The Zürich Airport (IATA: ZRH, ICAO: LSZH) also called the Kloten Airport, is located in the canton of Zürich, Switzerland and it is managed by Unique Airport. It is Switzerland's largest international flight gateway and hub to the Swiss International Air Lines.
There is a direct train every hour from the Zurich airport to Lucerne. Duration: 1hour.
There are numerous flights into Zürich and numerous hotels in Zürich and the Lucerne area.
There are several Guided Tour Agencies offering standard city, and historical tours of Zürich and the surrounding area.
After arranging your flight we would suggest getting your hotel and then letting them arrange tours of the area for you. If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.
We do this all the time. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!
