Tending watch over Lucerne sits the brooding Mt. Pilatus.
There are many mountain tops in Switzerland offering amazing views and one of these is Mt. Pilatus.
Steeped in legends that say there is a dragon living on the mountain or that Pontius Pilate is buried here, Mt. Pilatus offers views of meadows, mountains and lakes. In fact, this 7,000 foot high mountain boasts views of 70 peaks and 5 lakes!
Your trip up the mountain can start with a boat ride on Lake Lucerne continuing with a journey on the worlds steepest cog railway. After you’re finished exploring Mt. Pilatus, your trip down can be the same way or by a combination of aerial cable car and panorama gondola.
At the top there are 2 hotels, 7 restaurants and many options for your day! These include a toboggan run, tubing, walks and hikes for every level, mountain climbing, biking and paragliding. During the winter there is snow biking, minibob and more.
But I feel the clouds just add to the mystique of this legendary mountain, don’t you think?
