What To Expect

Known to be the Mountain of Dragons, Mount Pilatus is a majestic and massive nature's gem. Located in Central Switzerland, the mountain over looks Lucerne and is famous for its legends about dragons and stories about Pontious Pilate's soul. Go on this fantastic day trip to the summit via bus, cable car, boat and cogwheel railway train ride. The tour starts with a short coach ride to Kriens. There, you'll take the panoramic gondolas to Fräkmüntegg. Ascend Mount Pilatus via the aerial cableway, "Dragon Ride" - its panoramic windows making you feel like you're flying! Finally: Mt Pilatus. Once you arrive at the end of the cableway, venture down the Dragon's Path to begin your short hike to the summit. When you reach the summit, feel free to relax on the panorama terrace and admire the fantastic views of the Swiss Alps. When you're ready go back down the mountain with the most thrilling part of your day: a descent on the world's steepest cogwheel railway. Once you've arrived at Alpnachstad, take the 1 hour cruise back to Lucerne, where you can continue exploring the rest of the city - a wonderful end to the half day trip.

    Weather was not very good when we reached the peak of Mt Pilatus, but I guess that’s not within control of anyone.. We could only get view on one side of the mountain. Guide didn’t use a mic during the entire time, many ppl couldn’t hear what she was talking about. Not much info was given about the mountain, guide was more like a coordinator, helping us to buy tickets only. So if u can get your own tickets, forget about this trip, just DIY!

    Good service. Fantastic tour guide. Very organized and very informative. A must try for those coming to Lucern. Recommended on September- October to have a better view of the Mt Pilatus.

    I have been to Lucerne before, and I have been to Titlis Hill. This time, I went to Pilatus, and I was so clear that it was so far away from the lake and the surrounding mountains.

    The whole trip is very satisfactory, careful guides, beautiful scenery, the fly in the ointment is that the day is too foggy Z, can not enjoy the distance
