Take the train up to top admiring an Perfect Swiss landscape on the side of the mountain.
Spend time at the top admiring the amazing scenery, the Alpine horn player, the climb to the summit, and the dragon tunnel caves. Learn the legend of "Dragon Mountain."
Then take the cable car down for a thrilling view as you descend. On the lower cars you can hear the cowbells from the Brown Swiss cowas grazing the mountain meadows.

The cog railway is a whole different experience. The carriage is open sided and each one quite small as it makes its way slowly up the mountain Lake Lucerne looks smaller and smaller. The views going up are breath taking. At the top there is a hotel and places too buy food. The views from the top are amazing. We came down in a cable car part way and then changed into a. gondola. It was fun and well worth the trip.

She is very professional, friendly , well-mannered, and has great dominion and knowledge of the region. Congratulations for having such an amazing employee. People like Stephanie and Edmundo make a company prestigious.

We truly enjoyed our day on and around Mount Pilatus. From the cog train ride up, exploring the peak, having lunch and descending in the gondola, we experienced the clouds, greenery and the exhilaration of seeing Lake Lucerne from a new perspective.

We opted to take the cogwheel train (funicular) from Alpnachstad round trip to the top. Outstanding views of the Alps, lake and Lucerne below. There are three different eateries on top: take-away grill, self service cafeteria and hotel dining room (the latter is pricey). You can also take a cable car, from a different city. Cost was $75 each, but hey, a one time opportunity!
