Mt. Pilatus has been a classic tourist excursion in Central Switzerland since the early 19th Century, when British and German tour groups climbed its slopes on foot or by mule. The mountain is easy to reach from Lucerne, and it offers fantastic views of the Alps and theVierwaldstättersee (in English, the “Lake of the Four Forest Cantons” or Lake Lucerne).

There are several ways to ascend the mountain, which has a maximum elevation of 2,132 meters or 6,995 feet:

Here are my photos in Lucerne and on the Pilatus Kulm, taken in 1976 while I was touring Europe.

The photos were taken with a Kodak instematic, I took slides and not photos of the whole tour.
