On a sunny Sunday morning we caught a train to Lucerne to visit the top of Mt. Pilatus. This is the northernmost branch of the Alps that stretches through Lake Lucerne. Mt. Pilatus stands 2,218m high and is the home to the world’s steepest cogwheel railroad. We elected to ride an areal cablecar (called the Dragon Ride) to the top. There are many legends and stories surrounding the mountain. Many involve tales of dragons with healing powers that lived in the rugged clefts and crevices of Mount Pilatus. We did not see any dragons but did enjoy the stunning panoramic views.
