I highly recommend taking the excursion to the top of Mt. Pilatus. First taking a paddle-wheel boat then by cog train, you expirience a magnificent view of Lucerne 9,000 ft below and the snowcapped peaks in the distance. A memorable day trip.
Feed up your eyes with the stunning views of the mountain from different angles. It maybe from the Kulm terrace, from Esel peak or from Oberhaupt Peak. It's just wonderful!
The panorama gondolas take around 30 minutes to glide up the first section from Kriens/Lucerne to Fräkmüntegg at the foot of the mighty Mount Pilatus.
So here's what Pilatus looks like, if you look closely at the picture you will see a shiny building and that's where you will arrive.
There are four ways to come down from Mt. Pilatus. Hike, Gondola, steepest railway, or you can really have an adventure, paragliding. Who will reach Alpnachstad first?
At the top of Pilatus, you get a chance to play a Alphorn.It was so long I couln't get it all in this picture.
