We had gone a full day tour to Jungfraujoch and thought it couldn't be topped....well, we were wrong!
The guide and bus ride were excellent...take Bonine or non drowsy dramamine if you tend to get carsick because the rides are windy to Engelberg.
We stopped in Lucerne for an hour before heading up to Mt. Titlis.
Unfortunately, nearly all the stores are closed on Sundays and that was a disappointment for me (not my husband) but we were able to take a quick walk to the covered bridge and find a place to use a restroom.
When we got to Mt. Titlis, the guide explained everything and we were on our own (which was great) It was overcast and snowing and we thought that we weren't going to be able to see anything at the top...boy, were we WRONG!!
The 360 degree revolving (so slow you don't notice) cable car to the top was an unimaginable experience! We got above the cloudline and the sun was shining...clouds were below us with the tops of the mountains sticking out.
The clouds appeared to resemble a lake...we were almost to heaven!!
When we got out, we went outside to walk to another observation deck (if you don't want to go outside, there are windows inside to see the views)
My husband and I are in our mid 60's and not in the best of shape, but walking at this altitude did not bother us in the least. We did see people taking rests in the snowbanks etc, while there were brave skiiers and snowboarders starting their spectacular descents down the mountain.
We were disappointed in the ice palace here...very cheesy like frozen stuffed animals in a blocks of ice... If you want to experience a spectacular Ice Palace, visit the Ice Palace at Jungfraujoch. That experience has real ice sculptures carved inside the glacier..
Engelberg was charming. I had visited this village in the summer months many years ago and it's one of the most beautiful villages in winter or summer.
