This is a wonderful attraction and the cable ride was great and exciting. We were awed by the mountain and it's beauty and enjoyed the cafe at the top also. Well worth the time to experience the beauty of this country!

When you are there, you realise the power of nature and human limits! Breathtaking scenery, snow, black birds watching you all the time! The cable car ride is unforgettable!

We just love the beautiful scenery when we were at top of Mt Pilatus. The cable car ride was awesome. We we get to see the whole of Lucerne!

We stayed in Lucerne and took a day trip up to Mt Pilatus. The weather was overcast but the cloud was quite low and we were well above it when we got to the top. The views from the top were amazing and well worth the trip. Because we went in winter there was also the option of sledding from the second station (there are 3) back down to the first. We didn't do it because we were a little tired from our activities the previous day but I wish we had as it looked like fantastic fun. Our 3 boys (13, 10, 6) were kept well amused the whole time and had a ball in the snow at the top. We did have an issue with our credit card getting rejected (our bank later told us it was because there have been quite a few cards used fraudulently there) but it wasn't a big drama cause there was a cash machine right nearby. Make sure you go to the café at the top as the views are great.

The travel to Mount Pilatus in a gandola is worth an experience, reach to the top and experience the stunning Swiss views underneath.
