City/Town: Luzern
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: PILATUS 2118m

Next Sunday 3rd July, I will be hiking up Mt Pilatus again, from the North side.
The hike starts from Kriens and the route is via Mülimäs and then Fränkmüntegg.

I will be travelling down from Zürich by train to Luzern and then onwards to the start at Kriens via the Tram number 1, which leaves from outside Luzern bhf.

The train leaves Zürich at 07:04 - arriving Luzern at 07:49
The tram leaves Luzern at 08:00 - arriving Kriens at 08:10

Descent will be via either the cog railway down to ALPNACHSTAD and then local train back to Luzern ... or back down with the cable car down into Kriens.

I feel this is a more interesting hike than the route up from ALNACHSTAD as it is quieter but does get pretty steep at the top.

TIme to ascend is appx 4-5 hours depending on the pace (its not a race and we will go at a pace to suit everyone - if I want to hammer it, I go on my own).

Anyone wishing to join - please register below and if you have any question - please ask.

Meeting time will be at Zurich HB at 06:50.

Alternatively we can meet in Luzern.

Finally - as with all mountain hikes - it will be dependant on the weather, which I will check during the week.

  • basher - No klettersteig this week ..just good old hiking.
  • ThomasSSS - Looking forward to it. (No promises regarding pace though.)
  • francesco_ud - any suggestion on how can we meet each other?
RSVP'd Maybe: 1 (1 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 1
  • Assassin - Can't make this one, but have fun. The weather looks good and you have a nice route. I'd walk down the other side, the views are better out in the open rather than in the train.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

How did it go? I suppose weather was perfect there?
Sorry, I was away the whole WE and forgot to update my RSVP status.

Re: Hike up PILATUS near Luzern

Great thanks!
We had a small group of 4 in the end and as you rightly said - the weather was absolutely perfect.
Of course with Pilatus being almost like a small concrete town on the top - we didn`t hang around long and took a lunch at one of the huts on the way down.
With the weather being so good, there were a fair few people on the route too.
See you again soon!
