Zurich - Lucerne - Mount Pilatus - Zurich
Summary of The Day: Get ready for a very exciting day as we travel over the Albis Pass and along the shores of the Lake of the Four Cantons to the enchanting city of Lucerne. On a short introductory city tour, you'll see the impressive Lion Monument and Lucerne's most eminent landmarks such as Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Concert and Congress Hall. Enjoy leisure time in Lucerne's beautiful Old Town. From there we'll continue to Kriens, where we'll take the panoramic gondola to Frakmuntegg.
Then we'll hop aboard the aerial cableway Dragon Ride, affording jaw-dropping views of the Swiss Alps and the valley below. Once at the top of Mt Pilatus (2132 m), venture down the Dragon's Path or go for a short hike to the summit. Afterwards, relax on the panorama terrace boasting magnificent panoramas of the surrounding mountains.
The highlight of the day is the thrilling descent on the world's steepest cogwheel railway (48% gradient) to Alpnachstad. Here we'll board the boat for a lovely 1-hour cruise on the beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons.
