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 trip via bus to the charming city of Lucerne. There, you'll embark on a short introductory city tour that takes you to the impressive Lion Monument, Chapel Bridge, Jesuit Church, and more. Stroll through Lucerne's Old Town before continuing to Kriens, where you'll take the panoramic gondolas to Fräkmüntegg. Ascend Mount Pilatus with 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. Check out any of restaurants for lunch. 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 on Lake Lucerne - the perfect way to end a full, and exciting day.
