The highest suspension bridge and the first rotating cable car | Welcome to Engelberg

It’s the 100th anniversary of the gondola Engelberg Gerschnialp in Switzerland, which came into operation in January 1913 and it deserves to be celebrated in an appropriate manner. For this the Titlis Rotair has decided to build a suspension bridge, the highest in Europe, which devotes a meter in length for each year of the centenary. Hence, for the more adventurous, for those who do not suffer from the cold or get dizzy, the bridge rises to as many as three thousand meters above sea level although the rocks and the valleys are much closer. The suspension bridge will complete the offer of the Titlis which already has about 210 km of slopes covered in Snow Paradise Hasliberg-Frutt-Titlis, with many entertainment options for those who love the high altitude and snow sports. On Mount Titlis primates seem to accumulate: it was here that the world’s first rotating cable car was built, and is obviously still running.

In addition on December 21 whoever does not want to attend Maya apocalypse property is offered the opportunity to participate in a fun event: a downhill sledding at night lit by torches along a 3.5 km track that combines experiencing the Gerschnialp Engelberg. The package, if you like, can be complete with a nice dinner of Swiss fondue upon arrival in the valley.
