“Mount Pilatus”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Amazing views - loved the train going up. Definitely would go again but pick a clearer day. As the day wore on the clouds and rain came in so unfortunately could not see much on cable car ride back.

“A magic place”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

It is difficult to describe this mountain, one has to experience it. Aside of the tourist paths on and around the top, which are all worth exploring, the mountain practically invites you to meditate. It is difficult to find a quiet place during peak hours to do this but can be done. It is best to go up with the gondola and come down with the cogwheel train. The train connection from the cogwheel train to Luzern center is excellent and fast, I preferred it compared to the ship.
