Pilatus is the brother to Rigi. Both mountains are on the Vierwaldstattersee near Luzern, Rigi is in the east and Pilatus in the NW (northwest and partly in Nidwalden). Pilatus is considered to be Luzern's 'home mountain'.


 

 

Pilatus is 2132 metre high. The view here is east over the Vierwaldstattersee, which lies under the clouds. The fog-clouds (Nebelmeer) were at 700m, you can see the Burgenstock rising above them in the cloud see in the centre left. The Alps are in the background (peaks above 3000m).

 

 

 

View at the halfway point - this is where the sledders head down to Kriens (Luzern). The pictures were taken in February.

 

 

 

 

 

Alpine church just below the summit of pilatus - I especially liked the shadows from this angle.

 

 

 

Pilatus church - the path seems rather difficult to reach this church. I guess they do not have regular Sunday services.

 

 

The birds here have notoriously excellent eyesight - they can spot tourists from kilometres away....
