Overview

View the beauties of Mount Pilatus the Golden Round Trip! Enjoy the relaxing coach journey through splendid countryside and a visit of the charming city of Lucerne. Ascent by different aerial cable cars to beautiful Mt. Pilatus with possibilities of easy hikes and gorgeous photo opportunities.  Descent by the world’s steepest cogwheel railway followed by a relaxing boat ride on Lake Lucerne.

Set off for an exciting day travelling over the Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake of the Four Cantons to the enchanting city of Lucerne. Take in the views during a short photo stop en route and enjoy a brief orientation drive, where your guide points out the main attractions of this charming town like the Chapel Bridge, the Town Hall, the Jesuit Church and the Culture and Congress Centre. Enjoy the following leisure time to stroll through Lucerne’s beautiful Old Town. Continuation to Kriens, where you take the panoramic gondolas to Fräkmüntegg. Then hop aboard the aerial cableway “Dragon Ride” and enjoy the jaw dropping views out of the panoramic windows, especially designed to give the feeling of flying. Once at the top of Mt. Pilatus (2132 m), venture down the Dragon’s Path or go for a short hike to the summit. Afterwards relax on the panorama terrace admiring magnificent views over the surrounding mountains of the Swiss Alps and the blue lakes in the valleys below. Different restaurants invite for lunch. The highlight of this day is probably the thrilling descent on the world’s steepest cogwheel railway** (48% gradient) down to Alpnachstad. Here you board the boat for a lovely 1-hour cruise on the beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons and enjoy the spectacular landscape from an entirely different angle. Coach ride back from Lucerne to Zürich.
