Description

Many legends and myths have grown up around Mount Pilatus. In the bare crevices of Mount Pilatus lived dragons that brought salvation, at least that's what people believed in the Middle Ages. Even today you can discover the dragons here and at the same time marvel at the magnificent view.

From Lucerne you take a bus to Kriens. From here you continue with the panorama gondola to Fräkmüntegg. Immediately afterwards you change to the ultra-modern cable car "Dragon Ride". Thanks to the large panoramic windows, you can enjoy the breathtaking view even more. It almost feels like you are flying!

From the top station, it's a short walk to the top of Mount Pilatus. The Dragon Path takes you to 2132 m.a.s.l. Here you have a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains of the Swiss Alps and the blue lakes at their feet. You can take advantage of the numerous hiking opportunities or have a bite to eat in one of the restaurants

Afterwards, you will take the world's steepest cog railroad from Pilatus Kulm past blooming alpine meadows and exciting rock formations down into the valley. The 40-minute ride at a maximum gradient of 48% is a very special experience

The rack railroad was put into operation in 1889 and initially operated with steam. In the meantime, it has been converted to electricity, but this has not caused the railroad to lose any of its charm. It is still impressive how it manages a height difference of 1'635 m with partly extreme inclination and a maximum speed of 9km/h (downhill).

The bottom station is located in Alpnachstad, which lies directly on Lake Alpnach, a branch of Lake Lucerne. The tour ends with a relaxing boat trip on the idyllic Lake Lucerne. For one hour you glide on the water and can enjoy the landscape from a different perspective. The varied tour ends in the port of Lucerne.

Duration 5 1/2 hours
