Pilatus, Rigi or Titlis recommendations please

by dculpepper

Our group of 6 adults will be in Lucerne in September 2010. Which of the 3, Mt Pilatus, Mt Rigi or Mt Titlis would you recommend? My husband & I visited Titlis in 2008 and throughly enjoyed but I was wondering about comparisons. Thanks for your time & input!

Re: Pilatus, Rigi or Titlis recommendations please

Pilatus has the world's steepest cogwheel railway. You can get there by steamboat and travel back down by two different kinds of cablecars and the bus. This is quite a nice trip overall, and you have a great panoramic view.

If it is only for the view, Rigi might be more spectacular. You get up there by two cog railways and a cablecar, and you can also start by steamboat. If you are fit, you can also hike up the mountain, or part-hike it. That is what we did.

I would surely only get up to either mountain in case of really good weather and clear skies, as it costs quite a lot of money.

Titlis, you have been there, so you know how spectacular it is. It is much higher than the other two peaks, and always covered in snow and ice. So surely well worth a visit or even re-visit. I think it is just stunning.

But overall, hard to decide...

I have looked online for reviews, here on Frommer's you find quite a lot of information:

A mountain I quite like a lot is B├╝rgenstock which is somehow sitting right in Lake Lucerne. You can get up there by car, and have a coffee or meal at Hotel B├╝rgenstock, enjoying fantastic views over the lake and over to Lucerne. Particularly beautiful at night.

Travel Tips for Lucerne

Guided Tour

by tini58de

We got a guided tour though Lucerne, which took about 1 1/2 hours. The guide was fantastic and showed us around the most important sights, that are within walking distance. We even took some time off and just sat on the banks of the river Reuss and enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere.....

Travel up into the alps! It is...

by kris_1982

Travel up into the alps! It is very cool!! You must also visit some of the stores because the people are very nice and the stores have alot of nice things! You absolutely must also vist a restaurant and try some of the Switz cousine. Switz chocolate is the best chocolate in the whole world so buy alot of it!! It is very cheap there to buy the chocolate but when you leave, you will find that the choclate is too expensive to buy!! were the alps! The alps are enjoyable, especially if you decide to go up. If you do decide to go up the alps, wear something warm! It is COLD up there!!!

Lucerne Tip

by DrewV

The paintings on the more-famous Chapel Bridge show great moments in Swiss and Lucernish (or perhaps Lucernean) history. The paintings are reproductions, because in 1993, some idiot pulled a Captain Hazelwood and slammed his barge into the bridge. The whole thing caught fire, burned, and collapsed into the river, and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Needless to say, the Lucerners found it necessary to rebuild their prized possession, and after a short year, the bridge was reopened, paintings and all. Unfortunately, the guard tower in the midst of the bridge now holds a souvenir shop.

Lowendenkmal (Lion Monument)

by Fam_Stoica

The Lion Monument of Lucerne is one of the most popular and famous monuments in the world and the oldest remaining memorial in Switzerland.

The monument honors the memory of the heroic Swiss Guards who fell while defending the Tuileries in Paris in 1792. The sculptor Bertel Thorwaldsen designed the memorial and Lukas Ahorn from Constance carved the nine-yard long lion, shown protecting the French fleur-de-lis even as it dies. It carved out of the sandstone rock-face near the Glacier Garden.

Donkey rides

by sandysmith

Its not often you see Donkey rides through the old town centre of Lucerne...but it was someone's special day....a wedding. The brass band was playing "Its raining men" and the bride was being led through the streets on a donkey....really strange sight!
