  • This was a little pricey, but the views and experience were incredible. It was summer, and a clear bright day. Great views half way up and at the top. There is a restaurant there and some cafes too. B...  more »
  • Despite the price, the railroad rack offers an incredible ascent at the top of the Pilatus. The trains go up a slope between 45 and 48% for 40 minutes. It's very well installed (seated) with enough space to move around and take pictures of the landscape of the region.

  • The Golden tour is highly recommended. The ship, Pilatus railway, hovering and gondola ride is a special experience. There are many beautiful views of the beautiful Pilatus and Lake Lucerne region on the entire tour. The absolute highlight is of course the ride with the steepest cogwheel railway in the world. Undedingt recommended and actually a must...

  • The ride up was breathtaking. Go on a clear day you'll appreciate this magnificent place. This is not the tallest of them. Jungfrau is almost double the hight.
  • The Swiss Alps are stunning. A must see for travelers visiting Switzerland. The staff is well organized and the experience is unforgettable.
  • we took some breakfast with us and ate at Fränkmüntegg in the adventure Park then later took the second cable car to go all the way up. i can really reconned doing this. parking was normal priced, something like 5CHF for 4 hours.
  • A tremendous half day away from Zurich or Lucerne. I've done the cable car twice and it's worth every penny. Food at the top is PRICEY.
  • The view up there is amazing. Although the weather of that day I went was not that good, the scene was still breathtaking.

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.
