Lucerne is the perfect starting point for one of Switzerland’s most spectacular excursions: the Mount Pilatus Golden Circle Tour. 

First, hop onto a vintage paddle steamer, which lazily plows the turquoise waters of Lake Lucerne. Then, in Alpnachstad, on the lake’s southern shore, start the breathtaking ascent up the majestic Mount Pilatus aboard the world’s steepest cogwheel train. After reaching the top, we invite you to explore the great Swiss scenery during a short hike to the peak, or enjoy the grandiose panoramic views from the comfort of the amazing summit restaurant.

Come back down ‘to earth’ with a panoramic gondola ride, hovering over pristine Alpine meadows, back to Lucerne, where you will once again feel solid ground under your feet.
