We are visiting Lucern from 3/11 to 5/11, and are planning to visit Pilatus Kulm on 4/11. We wonder if anyone could kindly provide some advice please:

1. We read that the gondolas and aerial cableway are closed from 24/10 to 20/11. Does that mean the travel to Pilatus Kulm and back down must be by cogweel railway from Alpnachstad? Is the 'golden tour'still available?

2. Is it cheaper to buy the tickets of the cogweel railway in advance online, or is it the same price as buying at the train station on the day of travel?

3. Will the suspension rope park and the toboggan be open on 4/11?

Many thanks!

Thanks for joining MySwissAlps, kevinlo!

1. That's correct, you can only use the cog train from Alpnachstad. This also means that the Golden Round trip isn't available. But you can extend your trip with a boat ride over the lake from Alpnachstad or Lucerne, if you like.

2. The exact same tickets should result in the exact same prices, but there are several (tour) packages as well, so it all depends on what exactly you'll be booking. Please see www.myswissalps.com/pi latus/tickets and www.myswissalps.com/pi latus/packages. Mind that you're entitled to discounts if you'll be using a rail pass. The various pass discounts are mentioned at the "Tickets" section I just referred to.

3. I don't think so. The toboggan run and rope park are summer activities. Please refer to http://www.pilatus.ch/ en/pilatus-active/summer/.
