Pilatus – Alpine Outpost

Close to Lucerne, and easily reached by public transport, Mount Pilatus (2132m) has remained a much-loved destination for young and old alike. 2 cable cars, 2 hotels, 7 restaurants, the steepest cogwheel railway in the world and the largest rope park in Central Switzerland promise a day out to remember!

Emblem of central Switzerland and home mountain to the town of Lucerne, that’s Pilatus – from where the scenic "Golden Round Trip" by steamboat, red funicular rail and cableway back to the start makes a memorable trip.

Gornergrat – at the heart of it all

The perfect excursion (3,089 m): Impressive and majestic, standing out against the sky, the Matterhorn – a national symbol – steals the show from the other 37 four-thousand-metre mountains visible from here.

Over 20 gigantic 4000 and more meter-high peaks surround the rocky ridge between the Findelen and Gornergletscher, at 1500 meters above Zermatt. Since over a century a cog railway has made its way here – and still does today, every 24 minutes.
