Get set for a journey to Mount Pilatus and experience the freshness of the air at the Tomlishorn 2'128 meter peak!

The staggering scenery that opens up to you from the peaks of Mount Pilatus is enough on itself to entice any wanderluster to travel to Switzerland. Snow-topped mountain ledges, minty winter breeze, and the surrounding view, all are waiting for your arrival. The mountain's history begins in the 14th century, which is when it was first ascended by a man.

Some Swedish folklore tells tales about dragons that flew to Mount Pilatus and left accidental marks in the mountain's structure which are now used as passages to get around the mountain. The mountain's story later picks up in 1889 when an engineer by the name of Eduard Locher opened a 4'618 meter-long railway from the base of the mountain to the top of one of the peaks, which is the steepest cogwheel railway in the world, with a gradient of 48 percent.

If you are ready to brave the heights of Switzerland, then start getting your luggage ready and explore a range of tour options that include a stop in Lucerne!
