Pleasant alpine tour to Mount Pilatus next to Lucerne. Surrounded by the hills of Vierwaldstättersee, with its 9 pools and countless stretches of sunshine, provides a beautiful view. The summit is perfectly built, modern and clean. The world's steepest cog railway goes up to Pilatusbahn.Show more

After an impressive cable car ride over Fürenalp, the hike begins in the direction of Surenen. Between beautiful alpine roses and alpine pastures, the path leads downhill to the Alb Äbnet.
