Pilatus Photo Tour

From: Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland


This map, which was supplied by Pilatus-Bahnen, gives an overview of the "Golden Round Trip." During your tour, you'll take a boat or train from Lucerne to Alpnachstad, ascend the mountain by cogwheel railroad, descend the northern side by aerial cablecar, transfer to a gondola lift to Kriens at Fräkmüntegg, then catch a local bus in Kriens for the final (and short) trip to Lucerne.
