Hello guys, I read that the 2018 Swiss Travel Pass no longer cover Mt Pilatus for free but now only give a 50% discount. I will be hosted at Luzern on august, so I intend to go from Lucerne to Alpnachstad by boat, this route is free with STP? Then, I plan on taking the cogwheel train from Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm then the Dragon Ride cable car to Frakmuntegg . There I'll do the toboggan run, ride the cable car back up to Frakmuntegg, and then take the gondola down to Kriens. If I understand correctly, the cogwheel train and the cable car are 50% discounted. Would this ticket cost 72 Swiss francs/ 36 francs with STP? Is the gondola to Kriens still covered 100% by the STP? I will be hosted at Luzern, then I intend to go from Luzern to Alpnachstad by boat, this route is free with STP, right? Thank you for your help.

Hi Rafael,

The boat trip to Alpnachstad is free with your Swiss Travel Pass.

Going up and down the mountain itself is only covered 50%. It doesn't matter how you go up - cable car from Kriens or the train from Alpnachstad. A round-trip ticket would be 36chf with your Swiss Travel Pass discount. https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity

Lucas,

I just wanted to confirm that the STP price for the golden trip to Mount Pilatus is 36chf and with Swiss half fare card its 51 chf?

Also, wanted to ask if its possible to park rental car at Zurich main station for a couple of hours to walk around Zurich city center.

Thanks!

Yes, that sounds correct. With the Swiss Half Fare Card from Luzern you get 50% off the ferry trip as well as the trip up and down the mountain.

With the Swiss Travel Pass, the ferry is free and the mountain trip is 50% off. So it would be a little cheaper.
