The Mountain of the Dragon
There is hardly another mountain in Switzerland surrounded by so many legends as Mount Pilatus. Especially the dragons, who lived here from time immemorial, are a subject of tales and sagas. Mount Pilatus encompasses also an extraordinary beautiful mountainscape, symbolic of the country's magnificent natural splendour. Steeped in legend and tradition, this towering expanse in Central Switzeland offers a magnificent alpine panorama and nature at most impressive.
The best way to become acquainted with the dragon mountain is with the steepest railway of the world (ascent 48%), or the spectacular aerial tramway and modern soundless panoramic gondolas.

Aerial Panorama Gondola
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.

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!
