Titlis straddles the border between Obwalden and Berne, its massif being also partially located in Nidwalden.
The mountain is located between the municipalities of Engelberg on the north and Gadmen on the south.
East of Titlis is the Grassen, where the borders between the cantons of Obwalden, Berne and Uri converge. The Geographical centre of Switzerland is situated about 15 kilometers west of the mountain.
Titlis is the highest mountain in the portion of the Urner Alps north of the Susten Pass.
This part of the range is located between the valleys of the Hasli (west) and the Reuss (east),
thus separating the waters feeding the basins of the Aar and Reuss respectively. On the north side the valley of Engelberg (Engelbergertal) is drained by the Engelberger Aa, a tributary of the Reuss. The valley is located southwards from Lake Lucerne. The northern side of the massif is covered by the Titlis Glacier (Titlisgletscher).  The south steep and rocky face rises above the Wenden Glacier. The east side overlooks a glacier named Firnalpeligletscher.

History of Titlis Mountain
In earlier times, Titlis was known under the names Wendenstock or Nollen. The Reissend Nollen and the Wendenstöcke are the nearest western neighbours to the mountain, slightly lower than Titlis, but with sharp rugged peaks. In a document of 1435 the mountain is called Tuttelsberg (Tutilos mountain), referencing to a man named Tutilos, who was probably a local farmer. The name, from Tutilos Berg, became Titlisberg and later Titlis. The first ascent of Titlis was probably made in the year 1739. It was done by Ignaz Herz, J. E. Waser and two other men from Engelberg. The first written evidence of an ascent is found in the Engelberger Dokumente. They mention a party of four men that reached the summit in 1744.
On 21 January 1904 the first ski ascent of Titlis was made by Joseph Kuster and Willi Amrhein. In March 1967 the cable car to Klein Titlis (3,032 m) was inaugurated. In December 2012, the Titlis Cliff Walk opened to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Engelberg-Gerschnialp cableway
