Mt Pilatus - Mountain In Switzerland

Lucerne's "own" mountain has so many stunning sides – and on the Golden Round Trip you experience every single one: Lake Lucerne from Lucerne to Alpnachstad – the world's steepest cogwheel railway up to the Pilatus Kulm peak (2132 metres-altitude) – Alpine meadows, mountain streams, rugged cliffs and who knows, maybe even ibex, chamois, Alpine roses and gentian – breathtaking panoramic views over the lakes of Central Switzerland, not to mention the Alps – no fewer than 73 mountain peaks (you're welcome to count them) – delicious local specialties, à-la-carte menus and choice international cuisine in the Mount Pilatus hotels and restaurants – and as the fantastic finale, the ride by aerial cableway and gondola down to Kriens, where bus Nr. 1 takes you back to Lucerne in only 15 minutes. If you prefer to do the trip the other way round, you can naturally begin the Golden Round Trip over Mount Pilatus from Kriens! Highlights around Mount Pilatus: hiking trails from easy round paths to demanding mountain routes – panorama paths – Switzerland's longest summer sledge run – great children's playground – excellent restaurants at Krienseregg, Fräkmüntegg and Pilatus Kulm – pushchairs and wheelchairs welcome!
