Mount Pilatus

Taking a trip to Mount Pilatus is a phenomenal experience. Start with a train ride from Lucerne to Alpnachstad (which is the town at the base of this mountain). From there you will take a steep cogwheel to the top of the mountain – all the while being treated to beautiful views. If you are adventurous enough, there will be a point (about midway up the mountain) where they will stop the train so people could get out and hike the rest of the way up. At the top of the mountain you will enter a building with a souvenir shop and some restrooms. There are five hiking trails that you can choose to do. There is a hike to the highest peak (which is the Tomlishorn). Everywhere you look will be breathtaking mountain views that you will forever treasure. The trail is ranked as medium difficulty but if you are afraid of heights it might not be the best (it si safe, but still not for the faint-hearted). From the top, you can take the gondolas down the mountain.

There is also a jogging track lined with chestnut trees in the area near the lake, where there are some restaurants that have open air dining facilities. You will also enjoy watching the swans and other birds that call this area home.
