    Mini golf

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the back of the Hotel Krone, right outside the window of my room, was a mini golf course. The only thing is, most other mini golf courses I have seen put artificial turf to make it look like a golf course.

    Hiking to Mount Pilatus

    by machomikemd Written Nov 12, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    for the able bodied tourists visiting Lucerne, many go for climbing to the top of Mount Pilatus from the various base areas around like in Alpnach-Stad at the Cogwheel Station, at the Kriens area near the Cable Car Station, Hergiswil area in the north, Eigental area from the northwest and other hiking trails. the trails are well marked and the rock faces have ropes and the average hike to the top lasts for 3 to 5 hours, depending on the hiking skills of the mountaineers and tourists. most people then take the cogwheel railway or the cable car going down from the top of Pilatus Kulm after their mountain trek.

    Equipment: the mountaineers must bring their own equipment

    Address: Mount Pilatus, Kriens, Switzerland
