Mt. Pilatus by Cable Car and Cogwheel Train & Lake Cruise
- Duration: 5.5 hours
Start the day off with a train ride from the Lucerne train station to Goldau, where you will transfer to the Mt. Rigi cog wheel train, and then to the aerial tram, to reach the starting point of your hike at the 1,661-meter high Rigi Scheidegg. The panoramic views and the symphony of cow bells in the summer months provide the perfect ambiance, and served as the inspiration from Mark Twain's 1880 book, “A Tramp Abroad."

We were on an English speaking tour - the guide spoke great English - he was definitely not English :)
Everything is OK, but your information was wrong because dogs are not allowed. Dogs are allowed everywhere. So when visiting Jungfraujoch with our own entry our dog was there without a problem
It is a great tour if you are looking for some adventure! Loaded packed day! My wife and I loved our guide and the journey was incredible!
Although I had hoped the weather to be better, overall the experience was quite nice. Monika was wonderful
The best excursion you can do in a day in Lucerne. A discreet, efficient and friendly team!
