Mount Pilatus - Review

Every time you turn a corner in Central Switzerland, an Alpine peak greets you! Three such peaks are thronged by tourists- Jungfrau, Titlis and Pilatus. From Lucerne, Mount Pilatus is the most accessible and close one. One cable ride away, the views beckon you…the peak of Mount Pilatus, Esel, is a 10 minute walk away from where Lucerne looks like a model village and the Alps, never ending and grand.

Offering a 360 degree view, take time from just clicking pictures and admire nature’s gift with your own two eyes. The ideal way to plan your trip to Mt. Pilatus would be via a tour operator. During the winters, the cable car ride is suspended due to extreme weather conditions. Don’t fret for instead of a cable car, you get to ride one of the steepest cogwheel trains up and down the mountain.

Mount Pilatus is a beautiful peak, a short distance away from Lucerne, and part of probably the most scenic mountain ranges – the Alps. Visits can be made through a cable car from Lucerne and tickets for Mount Pilatus cable rides can be easily purchased online. You can even check Mount Pilatus ticket prices for cable cars on our ticketing portal. So better pre-book tickets in advance rather than waiting in long queues. It is always better to buy tickets for Mount Pilatus online as a time saving option. You can also get Mount Pilatus tickets for cogwheel trains that take you up the peak offering panoramic views all around.

Mount Pilatus, Lucerne Reviews

  • Well worth the price and time spent to reach the top. Outstanding views from many vantage points. The ride up in the cogwheel rail is extremely scenic too. Even when cloudy the views and atmosphere are great. Food is good, try the various sausages on offer.

  • Breathtaking views! You can reach the top with the telecabins and enjoy a drink, walk around and contemplate the beautiful nature. The mid stops are also very nice. You could take a ride on the longest slide in Europe - a toboggan of 1300m, a restaurant, fresh water creeks. All the journey to the top is child friendly. Definitely recommended!

  • This is one among the beautiful mountains in Switzerland. One can go to the top of the mountain by cogwheel train or by cable car. I have seen people trekking onto the top of the mountain as well. This has the worlds steepest cogwheel train. The view from the top of the mountain is surreal. There is an option to do paragliding as well. There is a restaurant on top of the mountain where one get good food. It is vegetarian friendly as well.

  • Amazingly beautiful and enchanting place. It's simply beautiful and breath taking. Must visit if you are in Switzerland. But the train is not operational during winters. You have multiple stops where you can get down and enjoy the naturee. You can either take the train, cable ride or just trek. It's picture perfect , just awesome !!

  • Best experience in Lucerne by far! Took the incredibly scenic cable car up the mountain. There are so many walks to do at the top, of varying degrees of danger. Great photo opps too. The cable station has shops & restaurants to warm up and fill up. Then the world's steepest locomotive took us down. Unforgettable!!
