Engelberg is the biggest resort in central Switzerland. Its top attraction is Mount Titlis: a rotating gondola takes you up to more than 3,000 metres above sea level. There you get a spectacular view, a glacier and some steep slopes that lead back down to the village of Engelberg, 2,000 metres below. Besides Mount Titlis there are 82 kilometres of slopes suitable for beginners as well as experienced skiers, snow trekking paths and cross country ski runs. Several shops have gear for rent. The train ride from Zurich takes just under two hours (change at Luzern).
