Combine Lucerne’s landmark mountain with a boat on Lake Lucerne – an absolute must of your visit to the Lake Lucerne Region. Taking the cruise lake ship right in front of the train station of Lucerne the Golden Round Trip starts. After a 1 hour boat trip on Lake Lucerne, a spectacular ride on world’s steepest cogwheel railway brings you to Mount Pilatus. On 2132 meters altitude (7000 feet’s) panoramic views over Lake Lucerne and the Alps awaits you. Enjoy the exhilarating 5-minutes ride by the new aerial cableway “Dragon Ride” down to Fräkmüntegg. Afterwards you change into the panorama gondolas which take you down to the Valley Station Kriens. A 5-minute walk and a 10-minutes bus ride takes you back to Lucerne.This is no guided tour and it's why that there is no meeting point.
