Pilatus-Kulm

Highly recommended
To get up to the Pilatus, that overlooks the Four Cantons Lake, take a ride on one of the steepest railways in the world. From the upper resort, climb a few minutes more to the summit of the Esel (alt. 2,121 m), from where you can enjoy the view of the Alps and the lake below. A walk around the gallery hew from the rocky face of the Oberhaupt is also recommended.
