75 Francs to take the cable car up to the top of this beautiful mountain. I suggest, if you're touring, get a Swiss pass for all public transportation. You can only buy it outside of Switzerland. (Since revisiting Mt Pilatus, I've found that they have...More

Great views but only 1 trail was open out of 4. The cost of taking the cable car is absolutely ridiculous as is the the cost of everything in Switzerland.

If you are in Lucerne this is a must do. The ride up the cable car to the first station is amazing, but the second is really breathtaking. You can ski, sled or just enjoy the spectacular view. Probably the best view in the Alps!

We have only visited the Pilu Land for kids, this is a playground in the forest. We arrived around 4pm which was great, fresh and not too crowded.
