Visitez la montagne phare de Lucerne, le mont Pilate, un incontournable lorsque vous êtes dans la région du lac de Lucerne. Commencez à la gare de la vallée à Kriens, et profitez d'une balade en télécabine de 30 minutes au-dessus d'un paysage préalpin pour atteindre Fräkmüntegg, où vous prendrez le téléphérique surnommé le « Dragon Ride ». Après cinq autres minutes, vous arriverez à 2 132 mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer. Profitez de la vue panoramique sur le lac et les Alpes, puis empruntez le chemin de fer à crémaillère le plus escarpé du monde en descendant les rochers, les ruisseaux de montagne et les prairies luxuriantes pour rejoindre Alpnachstad.
Thanks to viator I travelled for 6 hours by car to the destination for a mount pilatus experience to be told it's closed, went to the cable car station to be directed to the cogwheel train which is another 20 minute drive to be told we can't go with 3 children under 10Really disappointed that it ruined the day, had to book for another cable car experience directly with titlis instead.
The sights during the gondola and cable car ride up the mountain was amazing. It was a bit unfortunate that the weather had a lot of fog while we were up the mountain, but during moments when it would clear up, the view was breath taking. The rail car going down was a nice experience.
Loved it... a must-see place.
One important hint:
If you park car at the entrance, please don't forget to get the token at that time or upon return their office is closed. There is a machine for the token but it only accepts small currency bills and there is nothing around there to get the change. I had to wait for sometime until a gentlewoman helped me in getting the change.
Went up using chair lift and returned by gondola ride. Enjoyed going to the main area, where car was parked, by using public train and then bus. Had to walk for 30 minutes after getting down from bus. It was so pleasant walking through the streets of Lucerne.
