Filter to discover Lucerne for insiders

Mount Pilatus is Lucerne’s local mountain, a place that claims to offer 2,132 possibilities above sea level. Visitors reach this altitude either from Alpnachtstad station via the world’s steepest rack-and-pinion railway, or from Kriens via gondola and cable car, enjoying panoramic views. The Pilatus-Kulm and Bellevue hotels are situated on the mountain, offering splendid all-round views and a wide range of culinary delights. The options for physical activity are endless: there is something for everyone, from gentle strolls to alpine hiking, the biggest rope course in central Switzerland and the longest summer toboggan run in the country to climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty.
