3.5 kilometres of tobogganing fun awaits you on the rapid descent from Gerschnialp to Engelberg.

The funicular railway takes the tobogganists from Titlis valley station to the starting point of the toboggan run, Gerschnialp, in a short time. Once at the top, you grab a fast toboggan, which can be hired at the bottom of the station together with the purchase of the train ticket, or you can sit on your own ride. Who has the best technique and makes it to the valley fastest? The 3.5-kilometre-long toboggan run leads through the snow-covered Gerschniwald forest in long curves back to the starting point at Titlis valley station. The slide with so much mountain air makes your stomach growl. The restaurant line 8 directly at the valley station offers a remedy. Want some Indian? The snack bar next to the exit of the cable car takes you into another world. Strengthened, you can tackle the next descent.  The toboggan day ticket offers tobogganing fun up to the last ascent of the funicular and also includes a return trip to the Trübsee station.
