The world record-breaking Titlis Rotair cable car is a technical masterpiece and guarantees visitors an unforgettable adventure with views in all directions of snow-covered mountain peaks, steep rock faces and deep crevasses.
As soon as you have solid ground under your feet again, the fun and amazement continue. Discover the glacier grotto and be impressed by the mass of ice and the beautiful ice sculptures. Or grab a sliding device such as an inflated rubber ring and race down the slope.
Fun for the whole family is pre-programmed here. Whether with snow tubes, balancers or snake gliss, there is a suitable slide for everyone – not just for children, of course, but also for adults. First, you take the Ice-Flyer, a chairlift, over the glacier and look down into crevasses up to ten meters deep.
The glacier grotto lies in a soft, turquoise-blue twilight. The air is so cold that small white clouds appear when you breathe out.
Experience the blue wonder! In the glacier cave you can experience the frosty heart of the TITLIS. The ice in here is up to 5,000 years old.
The cave’s 150-metre-long corridor takes you ten meters below the surface of the glacier. The exploration tour through the glacier grotto is very impressive. The temperature in the grotto is a constant frosty -1.5 degrees Celsius.
You can easily reach the grotto via a corridor from the first level of the TITLIS mountain station.
