We took the gondolas up the mountain. We stopped and hiked along the way as well. Although we went at an off-peak time, the views and experience were sensational. We hiked through the fresh snow and enjoyed serenity, crisp mountain air, and amazing views. We...More

Reasonable price and fantastic view. You cannot miss it! But When we go there, the train part is closed due to the heavy snow. I really want to try the golden round trip. But the trolley is also quiet nice trip.

The experience of travelling up Mt Pilatus was incredible. It was a cloudy day and therefore we did not get to see the spectacular scenery. Nonetheless we were overwhelmed.

We had just finished a tour through Italy and decided to travel to Lucerne at the end. We visited mount Pilatus in November 2018. I had emailed ahead of time, because I know the gondola and train was closed for maintenance at points throughout November,...More

We took the bus to the foot of the mountain, then walked to the stop to take the gondola up the mountain. The view at the top was breath-taking, and well worth it. The restaurant at the top is great quality, and worth the visit;...More

A very nice ride on two cable carts to get to the top above the clouds. The view is wonderful and the snow was fresh.

If you want to experience Switzerland, do not take the cable car from Kriens- walk at least to Krienseregg and when you go back down: start walking from Fräckmüntegg. Good shoes are very needed- but you will enjoy an amazing view, have local beer and...More

Fantastic afternoon. Worth every penny, cable cars take about 30 mins in total, even if scared of heights it's 100% worth it when you get to top. Cars went through mist and clouds creating a great atmosphere, then breaks through clouds to the bluest skies...More

Hello, you need about 40 minutes to go to Pilatus Kulm by cable car from Kriens. Down the same time. Enjoy!
