Hi Chittagong,

Yes, depending on how long you want to spend (or can spend) on each mountain. It may be best to look through information pages on Mt.Titlis, Mt. Pilatus and Lake Luzern to see what there is to do and plan how long you will want to stay at each destination - although the lake cruise is a fixed time! ;)

The routes to take from Luzern to each destination is also listed in the links above.

Regards,
Lucas

Hi Shaah,

The route from Pilatus to Titlis will take you back through Luzern yes. You can search the routes and find schedules for your dates here. Enter Pilatus Kulm (for Mt. Pilatus) and Engelberg (Talstation Titlis) for Mt. Titlis.

It is a little awkward to do all 3 smoothly. Put the 3 destinations in Google Maps to give you an idea of geography.

I would pick the one you think you are ok not doing/seeing for last on the day, as you may be tired or run out of time.

Note that you will have more options if the cogwheel train from Alpnachstad to Mount Pilatus is operational when you are there. It opens mid May, but depending on the snow conditions on the mountain. If it's open, the route could be Lucerne - Kriens (change to cableway) - Pilatus summit (change to cogwheel train) - Alpnachstad (change to train) - Engelberg (change to cableway) - Mount Titlis - Engelberg - Lucerne. Then take a boat ride from there if there's time left.
