“Better than Jungfraujoch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Went to Pilatus and Jungfraujoch, but didn't exactly see much at J since it was slightly cloudy and still snowing. Pilatus was a much better choice, at least it didn't take a good two and a half hours to get up there like J (took about an hour one way), and I could see lovely snow scenery.

“Not to be missed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

The Golden round trip is not to be missed in the summer. Spend the extra dough and go first class on the boat.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We did the golden circle trip to Mt. Pilatus. The trip takes a whole day. It was cloudy that day, still the views were breathtaking. The ride up the cogwheel railway was mostly in the clouds. Once we reached the top, we were above all clouds and it was a beautiful view all around with the sun shining and clouds below.

“Fun but Expensive Gondola Ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

This was fun, but excessively expensive. Particularly given the fog at the top of the mountain. We were warned that we might not see much. The ride up, until the fog descended, was fabulous. Consider going up one way, and sledding down. Had we had the appropriate clothing, that's what we would have preferred to do.
