Engelberg – Engelberg-Titlis ski area
A skiing holiday in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area offers pure winter fun for winter fans of all ages – from family-friendly leisure activities to steep descents for professionals. In the midst of the Swiss mountain landscape, holidaymakers enjoy sporting activities and culinary delicacies in the former monastery village of Engelberg. A highlight for the whole family.
1) General information about the Engelberg-Titlis ski area
- Ski and leisure activities at an altitude of up to 3,020 m
- “Family Destination” seal of approval
- a total of 28 lifts
- 82 kilometers of slopes
The Engelberg-Titlis ski area is located in the heart of the Swiss canton of Obwalden in the midst of the breathtaking Swiss mountain landscape “Engelberger Tal”, which runs from the village of the same name to Engelberg to the “Stanser Boden”. With a total length of 82 kilometers of slopes and 28 lifts, it is one of the most beautiful ski areas in Switzerland.
Different levels of difficulty of the slopes make it interesting for young and old. With 38 km of blue routes, which are particularly suitable for beginners and children, and at least 30 km of slopes marked red, the ski mountain accessible from Engelberg offers a suitable offer for beginners. But even professionals don’t miss out. They can put their talent to the test on a total of 14 km of black route.
Engelberg, which is located at an altitude of 1,015 m, pays particular attention to a wide range of activities for the whole family. This commitment is appreciated not only by parents and children, but also by the Swiss Tourism Association, which has awarded the small holiday resort the official “Family Destination” seal of approval.
From the highest point of the Titlis, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of the ski area with an average of 6 hours of sunshine per day. This viewing platform is located at 3,020 m. Due to the above-average slope conditions, the Titlis is also popularly known as the “ski mountain of superlatives”. An average snow depth of approx. 354 cm ensures winter fun on natural snow. Snow cannons are always ready to offer winter sports enthusiasts perfect slope conditions throughout the season.
Our experts appreciate this and rate the snow reliability with 5 out of 5 stars. The top rating in the category “lifts and cable cars” with 4 out of 5 stars shows that the facilities are in perfect condition and that winter sports enthusiasts can reach all slopes quickly and easily.

3) Skiing in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area
The Engelberg-Titlis ski area offers a number of kilometers of slopes at different heights and levels of difficulty. In order to fully enjoy the offer, we recommend the “Engelberg-Titlis” ski pass, which includes the Titlis and Trübsee ski areas and the slopes around the Jochpass. This means that a total of 82 kilometers of slopes are available for pure fun on the slopes. A special highlight is the “Rotairbahn”, where the gondolas turn and thus offer a great 360 ° panoramic view.
While the only glacier – the Titlis – challenges winter sports enthusiasts with steep runs, other varied runs offer unforgettable skiing and snowboarding fun for the whole family. The adjoining Brunni ski area is ideal for this, as it offers not only easy slopes but also a special children’s ski area on which the little ones can practice undisturbed.
Simple practice slopes, small gates and slalom courses are available there, so that the sense of balance and the necessary coordination for later descents can be trained.
The longest slope in the Engelberg-Titlis area stretches over 12 km and overcomes 2000 meters of altitude. Real professionals and adrenaline junkies can ski the “Schonegg-Engelberg” slope or, alternatively, the “Titlis-Stand” slope. Freeriders and snowboarders get their money’s worth with the “Laub”. Superlative action is offered here with a starting slope inclined at 45 degrees. The “Jochstock Xpress” valley station, the “Obstacle Park” and defined areas directly in Engelberg with various rails and kickers await the cracks. The “Obstacle Park” is located on the Jochpass, which makes the journey a real highlight. Adventurous skiers get the ultimate kick in fresh snow. Then the Titlis Glacier becomes a real Mecca for freeriders.
Of course there are also suitable offers for fans of cross-country skiing. Five cross-country ski trails offer the opportunity to enjoy the glittering snowy landscape while gliding smoothly in parallel. Between Untertrübsee and Gerschnialp, flat passages and short but intense climbs form the perfect combination for leisurely cross-country skiing. When participating in guided cross-country skiing groups, the most beautiful levels of the ski area are covered.
For all winter sports enthusiasts who do not have their own equipment, we recommend renting them directly on site, for example in the Go-In sports shop.
Our experts rate the family-friendly and varied offer as very positive. In terms of “Families & Children” and in the “Snowparks” category, the Engelberg-Titlis ski area therefore receives 5 out of 5 stars.
4) Expert evaluation
Engelberg-Titlis is one of the most impressive ski areas in Switzerland. High glaciers and flat cross-country ski trails make the mountains around Engelberg an absolute must for winter sports enthusiasts. Our experts see it that way too. For this reason, the Engelberg-Titlis ski area receives an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars. Above all, the guaranteed snow and the modern lifts contribute to the high score. The top categories of the ratings also include the offers for “mountain restaurants, huts & gastronomy” and the “families & children” category.
5) Off-piste activities
As varied as the leisure activities on the slopes are, the range of activities on offer in addition to skiing fun is just as varied. Teenagers, young adults and children in particular get their money’s worth.
Snow tubing, in which you whiz down a slope on a rubber tube, is a popular alternative to skiing. Whether sitting or lying down, with your back on the descent or forward, everything is firmly under control: the type of descent is up to the driver of the rubber tire. The toboggan run, which starts on the Gerschnialp and leads down to Engelberg, is also a fast-paced experience.
The operators of the Engelberg-Titlis ski area also offer interesting leisure activities for fans of motorsport. Big and small visitors can rent electrically powered snowmobiles, which can be put to the test on the circular course in the “snowXpark” in Engelberg. Drifting and tight curves with full physical effort make this leisure activity a real highlight during your vacation. In junior mode, children aged 12 and over can also try out the vehicle.
A special highlight in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area is definitely Europe’s highest suspension rope bridge on the 3041 meter high Titlis, which is a real adventure over a distance of 500 m. The walk on the “Titlis Cliff Walk” is possible in good weather and free of charge.
A somewhat quieter alternative are the snowshoe trails – ideal for everyone who wants to take a break from skiing or snowboarding. You can enjoy the winter landscape in peace on the quiet hiking trails.
Shopping fans are sure to find what they are looking for in the world’s highest watch and souvenir shop – the “Swiss Lion Shop”.
If mom and dad want to enjoy a little break, the romantic evenings that take place regularly in the “Brunnihütte” are ideal. There, adults can enjoy the togetherness in peace with a good glass of wine and a delicious fondue with Swiss cheese specialties. In general, Engelberg has very recommendable restaurants to offer. These include, for example, the Bänklialp restaurant and the Espen restaurant.
Après-ski lovers also get their money’s worth in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area. Engelberg is known for its extensive parties, which are among the best après-ski parties in Switzerland. Two bars in particular are in focus: the “Chalet” bar and the “Yucatan” bar. While hip DJs set the mood in the “Chalet”, you can enjoy a nice after-show party in the “Yucatan”. Our experts see it that way too. Engelberg is therefore awarded 4 out of 5 stars in the “Après-Ski” category.
6) Locations in the ski area
Engelberg is located in the canton of Obwalden at an altitude of about 1,015 m. The small town was founded as the seat of a monastery. The old buildings can still be found today and give Engelberg its very own charm. Several youth hostels, hotels and holiday apartments provide modern accommodation in the typical Swiss style, which is characterized by half-timbered houses.
Noble à la carte restaurants and rustic mountain huts are responsible for the culinary delights of tourists and locals. From gourmet cuisine to traditional, home-style dishes, everything is there.
Although the romantic winter sports village is not particularly large, its infrastructure offers everything a vacationer could wish for – not only numerous shopping and leisure options, but also opportunities for medical care and pharmacies. Those interested in culture will also get their money’s worth in the former monastery. You can visit the monastery founded in 1120, which is impressive in size and has its own chapel. In the “Valley Museum Engelberg” you can collect a lot of information about the past and present of the place.
7) Arrival in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area
Engelberg is rated 3 out of 5 stars in the “Directions & Parking” area, which is a solid achievement. You can get here by car, train or plane.
When arriving by train, you can get off at the “Engelberg” stop. This is a big plus, especially when traveling with children and a lot of luggage.
The Swiss winter landscape has a few surprises in store for those arriving by car. Beautifully glittering landscapes make up for the often closed Alpine passes. Holidaymakers who travel by car should therefore have snow chains, frost protection for the windscreen wiper system and good winter tires in the car. Take the A2 (Basel-Gotthard) to Stans Süd, then continue on Hauptstrasse 20 to Engelberg
