Mount Pilates this weekend


I'm visiting Lucerne this weekend, are the panoramic cable cars to Mount Pilatus summit operational? Visiting Thursday to Sunday.

Many thanks

Hi Rhuari

There are two ways to go up and down Pilatus during summer time but only one now. The cogwheel train from Rigi-Kulm to Alpnachstad is not operating now. The winter damages need first to be repaired and the track needs to be safe before they start somehow in June. You can go up and down with the gondolas and cable cars from Kriens (a short bus ride from Lucerne).
