As first time tourists in Lucerne, travelling up Mount Pilaus was high on our agenda. Buying our tickets was relatively simple - we recommend using the Tourist Info at the main station in Lucerne as the staff are really helpful and explain the process. The...More
My group of 20 high school students took a boat ride across the lake in Lucerne, with crystal clear water. Then we took the cog railway to the top of Mt. Pilatus, where the temperature dropped from 70ish in town to 40 degrees F!!! The...More
My wife and I concerned alternative because the morning in Lucerne was cloudy. The gondola was disappearing into the cloud. We decided to go. What a great experience breaking above the clouds to see Mt Pilatus! Beautiful surroundings great adventure for a couple
Travelling by ship and then up to the peak by a unique cog wheel train sometimes at 45 degree angle and then return by cable car to Kriens and the last leg by bus from Kriens back to Lucerne was a unique experience .
It was overcast the day we arrived at the summit. But the ride up on the cog wheel train was amazing. The views spectacular, the train climbed slopes of 48 degrees. Well worth the visit despite the crowd cover.
We journeyed on the Golden Round Trip that consisted of a relaxing boat ride around and across the lake, a rack railway ride up Mount Pilatus, lunch at the mountain top, and then 2 gondola rides to the base where we caught a city bus...More
We went to the top of Mount Pilatus via cog-wheel train. The cable car was closed for maintenance, so we missed that experience, but it didn't decrease our enjoyment at all. We ate authentic Swiss food in the restaraunt on top of the mountain and...More

Hello there. Based on the pieces of advice I received before my trip in September, you shouldn't be booking any mountain trips in advance as the weather may become unpredictable. Booked/purchased activities are often non-refundable and I'm sure you wouldn't want to be on the alps when the weather's unforgiving.
I believe the fares for bus/trains/cable rides involved do not change on a daily basis so there is really no need to pre-book for mountain excursions.
Btw, Mount Pilatus and Mount Titlis were the excursions I did a few weeks ago and I couldn't recommend it enough.
