Golden Round Trip to Mount Pilatus from Lucerne | Travel guide to doing the Golden Round-trip Mount Pilatus in Switzerland

Mount Pilatus or Pilatus Massif is a group of mountain peaks in central Switzerland, overlooking the pretty & popular canton of Lucerne. One of the top attractions for visitors to Lucerne is the ‘Golden Round Trip’ to Mount Pilatus from Lucerne and back. As the name suggests, the ‘Golden round trip to Mount Pilatus’ is a round trip which takes travellers through some of the most charming swiss alpine landscapes via boat, cogwheel railway, aerial cableway and Panorama Gondolas to the main peak of Mount Pilatus (which is Pilatus Kulm) and back.  On our 8 day self-planned trip through Switzerland, we planned to visit Lucerne and do the golden round trip along with the main attractions of the city. The Golden round trip to Mount Pilatus was definitely the highlight of our Lucerne visit and am sharing our experience as well as pro-tips here:

Basel in Switzerland | Switzerland self planned Holiday Diaries

Basel in Switzerland, located in north western part of Switzerland where the borders of France, Germany and Switzerland meet, has a vibrant earthy vibe. Basel was our base city on the self planned trip to Switzerland, not out of choice but mostly because the husband’s work needed him to be there for couple of days. I did not know much about the city beforehand and it took me lots of research before planning the trip to Switzerland. Basel seemed to be quite a staid city from most of the accounts I read on the travel blogs & articles. However, Basel surprised me with this vibrant culture, heritage, rich repository of art & culture and its multiple layers. Spending our time in Basel during the Switzerland trip was one of the best decisions we took, as it also was economical than other more popular Swiss cities. Sharing my experience of Basel in Switzerland.
