Engelberg-Titlis is a wonderful Swiss family vacation village - complete with ringing church bells and plenty to do other than skiing!
This charming little village is just two hours from the Zurich Airport on the
efficient and easy train system. If you prefer a private shuttle, that
can be arranged as well. I would suggest ski school for a beginner skier,
and a guide on the first day for intermediate to advanced skiers to get the lay of the land. After skiing or on a day off, visit the local Monastery, the Cliff Walk, the Titlis Rotair (revolving Cable Car),the Mt. Titlis Glacier Cave or the Cheese Factory.
Regarding accommodations, the Hotel Terrace is a lovely hotel overlooking the village. A short stroll through the village brings you to their private elevator taking you up THROUGH the mountain to their entrance. Once inside experience a grand hotel (110 years old) with Marble pillars and a spacious sitting area. The rooms are comfortable and most have large balconies overlooking the village. Dining is casual and rates include breakfast.
Hotel Bellevue is undergoing a room renovation and will offer some of the most updated rooms in Engelberg-Titlis. It's location across from the train station makes it most one of the most accessible to skiing as well as the town for shopping and nightlife. This lovely hotel has wide hallways and very nicely appointed rooms with modern touches. Adjoining rooms are available too for families who need a lot of room. There is no pool/hot tub or spa at this property however, but breakfasts are included and they do a very nice après-ski throughout the winter season.
The Alpine Lodge Trubsee is very unique because it is a 20 minute cable car ride to get to the hotel and once there, it is not accessible to the village after the cable cars cease for the day. Trübsee Alpine Lodge is situated at 1,800 meters above sea level and is surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape.The hotel's 31 rooms are perfect for anyone wishing to experience the mountains of Central Switzerland in all their
glory. The terrace for sun seekers offers a great view of Lake Trübsee and the surrounding mountains. Its "cow theme" really reflects the local culture based on daily production for the region. Breakfast is also included.
