About
Description
The successful conclusion of the complete refurbishment in August 2010 marked the beginning of another chapter in the vibrant history of the historic Pilatus-Kulm Mountain Hotel. The heritage-protected More Hotel Pilatus-Kulm once again stands for the uniqueness that characterised it when it first opened in 1890. The generous hotel rooms and suites herald the dawn of a new era at Hotel Pilatus-Kulm with its distinguished tradition. Less
