  • Unfortunately the cable car was closed when I went but the cogwheel was still great. It was super foggy down in the town but then at the top we were above the clouds and had a cool view of the alps.  more »
  • The cog railway on the Pilatus is unique. With 48% incline, the steepest track in the world. Very nice ride up the mountain, with 35 minutes driving time just super.

  • An adventure not to miss in this lifetime. One of the most beautiful places on earth. Breathtaking, magical, beautiful from start of trip to get there to the trip back down. Incredible. Wow. The train ride alone makes this trip worthwhile. A hidden gem in this world. Transportation in Europe is made easy to get around and to get to places in general. I will be back with even more excitement and awe and look forward even more to seeing these spectacular views once again.
  • Amazing views, paragliding, mountain birds, mountain cable cars climbing up the mountain one after one fr the tunnel below! Another thing must not missed, thought only few staircase steps will reach the top round n round the mountain footpath without the rod is another challenge but not scary just a bit loose stones here n there! Once you up there you feel proud n happy, just enjoying the view! Surrounding magnificent view make you feel like you are at Himalayan rather than Switzerland!
