据称， 1420年，一块龙岩石从天而降。当时罗马的统治者皮拉图斯可能已经被埋在皮拉图斯湖。传说，一位被石化了的男子矗立在一个山洞的前面。皮拉图斯山连着山上的塔，共2132米高，无疑给大家提供了广阔的想象空间。甚至今天，皮拉图斯山还是神秘发现的发源地，是传说中自然景观之美的来源。 可以从琉森乘坐全景缆车和空中缆车到皮拉图斯山，也可以从阿尔卑纳赫施塔德乘坐世界上最陡峭的齿轨铁路到达。因此可以进行一次往返的旅行，包括划蒸汽船、乘坐齿轨铁路、空中缆车和巴士。可以结合不同类型的运动、徒步旅行或是夏季雪橇滑行。
The best way to become acquainted with the dragon mountain is with the steepest railway of the world (ascent 48%), or the spectacular aerial tramway and modern soundless panoramic gondolas.
For those people who like boatrides and mountains, the Golden Roundtrip is a wonderful journey. To Alpnachstad by boat or train, then to Pilatus Kulm on the world's steepest railway. Descent by the cable car and gondolas to Kriens, Lucerne or the whole tour vice versa.
The variety of hiking tracks lets every enthusiastic hiker's heart beat faster. In the region of Pilatus, you will find tracks not only for hikers, but for mountaineers and alpinists as well.
Another very particular attraction is the longest summer-toboggan run of Switzerland - a funny and sportive experience one should not miss.
At Krienseregg you find a large children's playground, a recreation area with waymarked hiking trails and picnic areas with tables and benches and open barbecue.
At 7000 feet, the summit offers one of the most beautiful panoramic view, spreading from the city of Lucerne to the Lake of Lucerne, from Säntis to Titlis, from the Bernese Alps to Jungfrau, over the Swiss borders from Schwarzwald to the French Alps. This unique panorama can be even experienced when the heavy fog hangs over the lowlands, and as one breaks through the thick layer, one arrives on top to see the sunshine embrace the peak. It seems to be another world! It is as if one would leave all of the everyday routine and stress down below in the valley. Cruise downhill through the woods on one of the longest and most thrilling slopes in Central Switzerland that guarantees speed and fun.
The high altitude Christmas Market is sure to be a special attraction in November!
