me and 3 other of my family members are planning to travel from lucerne to engelberg for 3 days .

From engelberg we plan to visit Mt titlis and mt pilateus .

  • Could you please let me know if buying Tell Pass of 200CHF is worth, if we plan to visit ONLY Mt titlis and mt pilateus and engelberg region .?
  • Could you also suggest any other activities or places to visit in engelberg or nearby .?

we plan to go back to lucerne on 4th day .

Thanks in advance for your help .

Hi PL,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Tickets to Engelberg and back, plus the two mountain excursions, are around CHF 200 per person. So if you add anything else, it will be cheaper with a Tell Pass. Also the pass is more convenient as you don't need to buy tickets for each train trip. Note that a 4-day pass is CHF 220 though, a 3-day pass is CHF 200. Please see tellpass for pass details.

Activities can be found on lakelucerne/activities. A nice hike near Engelberg is this one: hiking/engelberg-obertruebsee-truebsee.
