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.

    The time rhythm is well arranged, and it won't take a lot of time to wait. It is really a good experience to take the cable car, the high steep slope train and the Lake Lucerne in one day to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and lakes.

    The guide Malerie Panzer is not very friendly towards the Chinese and criticizes the guests in public! The car also went around to Rigi to let the guests who took part in other trips get off the bus so much that it took a lot of time. When Lusen arrived, there was no time to visit the Lion Monument! Fortunately, there is a good weather, otherwise it would be disappointing to encounter such a tour guide.

    The itinerary is compact and the time to stay in Lucerne is short. Take the different transportations up and down the mountain. There are other passengers on board in Lucerne.

    The whole trip is very beautiful and very fun. However, Lucerne did not go to see the dying lion statue, which is not the same as the one on the itinerary.

    The guides are very good, the cable cars and the rail cars are all on board. The weather is very good and the scenery is beautiful. The time is small but it is still ample! In addition to the mountains, there are still great lakes after the downhill!

    A very good day on a local tour of local. The first guide took us to luzern to stay for 1-2 hours. Luzern is a very beautiful city. Then we took a tram to mt. Pilatus was very foggy at the foot of the mountain, and when it reached the top of the mountain, it seemed like a cloud, it became blue sky and white clouds. Overlooking the entire sea of ​​clouds, Mt. Pilatus is extremely beautiful!
