    Stop At: Mount Pilatus, PILATUS-BAHNEN AG Schlossweg 1 Kriens, Lucerne 6010 Switzerland

    Begin your tour by meeting your tourguide at your hotel and make your way into central Lucerne. Close to the train station, you will board a boat to take a one-hour cruise on the lake Lucerne. Enjoy the view to the surrounding mountains and look back towards the city, when the boat is departing. After one hour you will arrive in Alpnachstad, where you will change onto the coghwheel railway. The Pilatus railway operates from Mai until October (depending on weather conditions, especially snow) and is the world's steepest coghwheel railwas. The 35-minues journey takes you from 464m above sea level to the top of mount Pilatus  to an altitude of 2128m. Once you arrive at the top, you will walk through the rock, where your tourguide will show you some hidden military objects. Alternatively, climb up the stairs to the panoramic platform and enjoy the scenery around. Your tourguide will take you through the galery of dragons, a myth about mount Pilatus. 

    After the sightseeing tour, you will have the change to enjoy your lunch in one of the two restaurants. Your tourguide is happy to join you. You will spend the remaining time according your preference, before you will start your descent. A panoramic gondola will take you down to Fräkmüntegg, where you will change on the 4-seat-gondola. This section will take you above trees and meadows down to the suburb Kriens. A 10-minutes walk will take place to the bus station, from where you will be in the city center in Lucerne within 10 minutes, where the tour will end and your tourguide will lead you back to the hotel.
