Encircled by towering peaks and blue lakes, Mt. Pilatus offers some of the Swiss Alps’ most impressive mountain vistas. If you’re considering a trip up mighty Mt. Pilatus, here are a few ways to make the most of your journey from Lucerne.

Half-Day Tours
With 6,982-foot (2,128-meter) Mt. Pilatus located within such easy reach of Lucerne, half-day tours are the perfect option for time-limited visitors. Enjoy a 30-minute panoramic gondola ride from Kriens to Frakmuntegg, then ascend by aerial cableway to the peak of Mt. Pilatus for spectacular views over the Swiss Alps. Ride the world’s steepest cogwheel train down to the town of Alpnachstad, then finish with a cruise on Lake Lucerne.

Full-Day Tours
For visitors with a few more hours to spare, full-day tours of Mt. Pilatus and the surrounding area showcase even more of the region’s rich culture and scenery, with more time at each point of interest for sightseeing and activities. If you choose a private guided tour, enjoy the freedom to customize your itinerary to hit your favorite highlights.
