Mount Pilatus

A visit to Mount Pilatus is the perfect day trip from Lucerne and an amazing mountain adventure. You can either take the world’s steepest cog railway (a 48 percent grade in one section) from Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm in the summer or board a panorama gondola in Lucerne partway up the mountain before boarding the aerial cableway to the summit. Mount Pilatus is an icon of Switzerland and an experience you’ll never forget.
