About Mount Pilatus, Lucerne

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

  • unbelievable place. take the cable car up, the train down from the other side and then the cruise. the best way to enjoy it. scenic scenic scenic all through. very close to Lucerne so very light on travel. spend some time near the cruise station, it's beautiful. almost like hand pained beauty and tranquil. the train is a fun experience, not as adventurous as it looks. pretty laid back and, but still fun. multiple levels you can stop at in cable car. and worth waiting at most. the mountain slide is great fun. not to miss

  • The most incredible place i ever visited. I feel blessed and privileged, that i had opportunity to do it. Stunning...hard to describe in words🙌🏻💗

  • I visited here in 2010 and found it to be one of the best experiences of my life. It is so beautiful and amazing to get to the very top! :)

  • It's November so most things are closed but went up the lift and had so much fun. Beautiful & Amazing! Worth the trip. I wouldn't recommend doing the tours. Get a map of Mt. Pilatus and the locals are friendly and can help you find places. Its easy and cheaper and you will get enough time to look and do everything. U can buy your tickets right there. From Nov. - March it's only open M-F and the last lifts are b4 4pm cause they close soon after and takes time to go up and get back down. Fun and Amazing!

  • Had a blast !!! We had the children's Christmas Market up in Pilatus with a lot of shopping and activities for children!!! Amazing views and even the sunset... A day truly well spent.. Both during winters and summers it's awesome with kids... A whole lot of activities to do!!! Enjoyed a lot...
