I enjoyed the Pilatus read train and the views at the top. I recommend to go back by gondola. Excellent experience and is very easy to go back to the downtown

Lucerne, itself, is one of the most magical places...add to that a trip up Mount Pilatus and experience the surreal moment of stunning beauty of creation.
