Hi Girish, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
>> Do we need to book tickets online?
Tickets can't be bought online. The Pilatus website tells you where you can buy tickets:
>> Will there be too much of tourists during this time?
You might have to queue for a bit before boarding the cogwheel train and/or cable car.
>> How much will be the approximate duration for this entire trip with a moderate time spending in the Important places?
You can use the Swiss Timetable to plan your trip and find out how long it takes:
Use the one on the left with the red SBB logo.
- First, search for the boat trip by using use advanced search and limiting the "Transport type" to "Ship". Ships are indicated in the timetable by BAT (ship) or BAV (steamship). The stops you want are Luzern Bahnhofquai and Alpnachstad (See).
- Then search for the cogwheel train trip using the stops Alpnachstad PB and Pilatus Kulm.
- For the trip back, use the stops Pilatus Kulm to Luzern via Kriens, Zentrum Pilatus.
It's up to you how much time you spend on top or at any of the mid stations on the cableway.
>> What will be the ticket charges as we are having Swiss Half Fare Card?
