Aussicht vom Pilatuskulm auf den Vierwaldstättersee

Pilatus – The dragon mountain

You will be amazed by the magnificent panoramic views of the Lucerne-Lake Lucerne Region

What a magnificent view. Sometimes you see a sea of cloud below, punctuated here and there by the peaks of other mountains. At other times the view is so clear that you can see every mountain from the Säntis to the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, over the Jura to the Black Forest. The winding Lake Lucerne and five other lakes in Central Switzerland sparkle in the sun. On the Pilatus itself you can stroll, follow in the tracks of the dragon, savour a gourmet menu or regional snack or, with a little luck, see an ibex.

The steepest cogwheel railway in the world, with a gradient of 48% and a length of 4'618 metres, links Alpnachstad with Pilatus Kulm at an altitude of 2'132 m.
