Mt Pilatus self-guided trip by cable car from/to Kriens

Mt Pilatus self-guided trip by cable car from/to Kriens

Visiting Lucerne’s landmark mountain, Mt. Pilatus, is a must-do when you're in the Lake Lucerne region. Start at the valley station in Kriens, and enjoy a 30-minute gondola ride over a pre-Alpine landscape to reach Fräkmüntegg, where you'll transfer to the aerial cableway known as the 'Dragon Ride.' After another five minutes, arrive at 7,000 feet above sea level (2,132 meters). Soak up the panoramic views over the lake and Alps, before going back down to Kriens the same way.

This is not a guided tour and there is no meeting point.

Visit: Pilatus Luzern, Schlossweg 1, Kriens, Lucerne 6010 Switzerland

Start your trip at Kriens valley station and enjoy the 30 minutes ride with the panoramic gondola from Kriens to Fräkmüntegg, where you can visit the biggest rope park of Central Switzerland (suitable for visitors from 4 years old). In winter, there are sledging routes and snowshoe trails from Fräkmüntegg down to Krienseregg; the rental station is at the valley station in Kriens.
At Fräkmüntegg you will change to the aerial cableway "Dragon Ride" and reach the summit Pilatus Kulm at 2132 meters above sea level in 5 minutes. At the top of the Lucerne's landmark mountain, you can enjoy the great panoramic view over the Swiss mountains and Lake Lucerne. You can also hike to one of the three peaks at Pilatus Kulm (Esel, Oberhaupt or Tomlishorn) or walk along the Dragon Path.
At Krienseregg, Fräkmüntegg, and Pilatus Kulm you can try some local specialties in one of the restaurants before heading back to Kriens by cable car.
