Mount Pilatus is the reason brought us to Lucerne
Mount Pilatus is famously known as the Dragon Mountain, as medieval legend often described this as a home for dragons with healing powers and it is located at central Switzerland in Lucerne. On a clear day, the mountain offers a panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks. It is not surprising though, considering the Mt. Pilatus is well over 2,100 meters (7,000 ft) high).
One can reach the top of Mt. Pilatus by the cogwheel trains, gondolas, cableways or combining all of these three together with a boat ride across Lake Lucerne (this ride is called as Golden Round Trip). We made our journey through the train from Alpnachstad, well known to be the steepest cogwheel railway in the world!
