Mount Pilatus

The multi generation mountain on Lucerne’s doorstep offers you a wide range of leisure and recreation amenities. ‘2132 possibilities above sea level’.

You can reach the summit either with panorama gondolas and spectacular aerial cableway ‘Dragon Ride’ from Kriens (all year) or with the world’s steepest cogwheel train from Alpnachstad (May – Nov) passing through lush meadows carpeted with Alpine flowers, sparkling streams and fascinating rock faces. If you combine it with a lake cruise from Lucerne (May – Nov) you have done the Golden Round Trip.

Activities such as the PILU Land playground at Krienseregg, Switzerland’s largest suspension rope park at Fräkmüntegg or the Dragon Path hike with breath taking views on the summit promise lots of enjoyment all day for every generation.
