Golden Round Trip, Switzerland, 11th October 2011

294 ratings | 109904 views
This is a record of one of the magnificent rail/boat journeys that are available in Switzerland. I did this trip with my wife in October 2011 and although there was snow on the top of Mount Pilatus, it was surprisingly warm. The trip can be done either way, but we decided to start in Lucerne. First there was a boat journey to Alpnachstad. Then we picked up the ride on the worlds steepest cog railway to the summit of Mount Pilatus. Then the descent on the other side of the mountain starts on the Aerial Cableway to Frakmuntegg. Then the Panoramic Gondola takes you further down the mountain to Kriens, where a short bus ride took us into the heart of Kriens. We then took a train to Hergiswil where we were staying. The day was fantastic. Thanks Philhill1955

Hi Muhammad, Dont forget though that the price I have mentioned was 5 years ago, so obviously the prices will be a lot more now.

Hi Muhammad, Sorry for the delay in replying but I do not check my videos very much. When myself and my wife were in Switzerland we went into a tourist information office where the lady was very helpful. She was able to offer us a pass for all forms of travel over 5 consecutive days. There was a special offer on at the time so it cost 90 GBP for both of us. This allowed us to travel on trains, boats, cable cars & buses for no additional cost.

Hi Samina, thanks for your comments. I have been to Switzerland 2 more times since 2011, I have lots of footage of the Glacier express and Bernina express journeys I have done. But I haven't got round to compiling a video for Youtube. maybe I will in the near future. Sorry for not replying sooner, but I tend not to check my youtube channel much these days.

+Samina Kashif I did have a holiday in Switzerland in October 2015, but I haven't compiled a video from all my clips. I enjoyed a complete journey on the "Glacier Express" the "Bernina Express" as well as more cable car rides. Perhaps I may compile a short video in the near future.

Unfortunately not. I'm not sure trying that because of my advanced years would be a good idea. Lol

It is advisable to start in Luzern City, by  boat going to Alpnachstadt then going up riding by COGWHEEL TRAIN. From MOUNT PILATUS - KULM , going down by  groupe SAILBAHN , then riding again in  small SAILBAHN going down to KRIENS.

It appears taking cable tram provides a far better view than the cog railway.
