Easy to get to and just breath taking. We took the cog wheel train up and gondola down. Views are stunning

Did the boat ride to Mount Pilatus from Lucerne and it was absolutely incredible. Once getting to the mountain took the train up. The scenery once at the top was just breath taking. You can definitely spend all day here. I would definitely love to go back and hike up next time instead.

The overall Mt. Pilatus experience was amazing. This was actually our second time visiting because we love Lucerne and Mt. Pilatus so much. Our tour included a scenic boat ride, the world's steepest cog railway, plenty of hiking near the summit, multiple gondolas on the descent, and a bus back into town. We had great weather so the views were... More

I went to Mount Pilatus in Switzerland for the first time in November 2012 and I was so fascinated with the beauty up there. It was like heaven to me and the air is so clean and with a very beautiful scenery that will make you want to stay there permanently. The employees who work there were so kind, helpful... More

It is breath taken from the bottom to the top. One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. All the way up is very smooth with the local funiculaire and when on the top the view is hard to discribe. It is a "must see" item in your list for sure. I recommend.

Wonderful place. Do not miss to visit when in Lucerne. 3 dive-rent possibility to go on the top of the mountain. The most beautiful view. A must see while in Lucerne. A round trip take also including a boot ride.

I'd highly recommend a trip up Mount Pilatus, to go up in the train from Stans (the steepest cog railway) and down the other side in cable car to Kriens is a fantastic experience. The views from the top are just breathtaking. On a clear day you can look across to the alps on one side and down over Lake... More

i paid ~£75 pp for the golden ticket but once we had boarded the boat and the ticket was stamped the rain started and all the clouds came down. the cable cars were closed because of the wind and you couldn't see anything going up the cog wheel railway or at the top of the mountain except white cloud. we...

Coming from an Asian country with no winter season, I truly enjoyed the ride up Mt. Pilatus as well as the view up there. It was a very safe ride and the view is awesome!

My wife and I decided to take the gondola to the top. The views on the way up were amazing but nothing like the views while at the top. The sun was shining and reflecting off of the snow. We actually took our jackets off because it was so warm. On the way back down, we stopped to listen to... More
