Pilatus Tour

 (2)

The golden round trip.

Lucerne’s “own” mountain has many stunning sides – and on the “Golden Round Trip” you experience each and everyone!
I guide you to Kriens, where you start for the Golden Round Trip.
Travel by panorama gondola and aerial cableway to the summit of Mount Pilatus. Enjoy the ride in the new aerial cable car “Dragon Ride” which gives passengers the impression of flying thanks to their cockpit-like design and large windows.
A uniquely impressive panorama of 73 Alpine peaks and countless lakes awaits you on Pilatus Kulm, some 2132 metres (7000 feet) above sea level.
Several restaurants and a large sun terrace await you.
A spectacular ride on the world’s steepest cogwheel railway then takes you down to Alpnachstad, where you enjoy a pleasant 1 ¼ hour cruise to Lucerne. Here you have some leisure time for shopping before you meet me again and returning to Zurich.

** Winter period: Cogwheel railway and boat are not operating – both up and down are available by cableway only.

A RECENT REVIEW OF THIS TOUR

Thomas’ day-long Pilatus tour was a delightful revelation, exposing us, as it did to Lucerne and then the awesome natural wonders of Zurich’s amazing massif. Thomas is enormously knowledgeable, experienced, personable and accommodating. In addition, owing to his decades of experience, he is a superb driver. If you have a day to spare when visiting Zurich, you can’t possibly invest it better than to experience Pilatus with Thomas’ expert guidance. (Be sure not to miss the “church without windows” en route.
