Mount Pilatus is a mountain massif in Central Switzerland. It overlooks the city of Lucerne and stands 2132 meters above sea level. Pilatus is also known as the dragon mountain as a dragon rock supposedly fell from the sky in 1420 and formed the massif. On the other hand, it got its name from the Roman governor Pontius Pilatus, who legends say have been buried in the Lake. The mountain can be reached from Lucerne by a gondola lift and aerial cable car or from Alpnachstad through the world’s steepest rack railroad ascending at 48 percent. Mount Pilatus is best visited in the summer for hiking and mountaineering and ofcourse, to experience the longest toboggan run.
