Swiss Alps part 3, Titlis & Pilatus. The most exciting, convenient excursion out of town is to Mount Titlis, where you get a chance to frolic in the snow at the top of a mountain, just two hours from Lucerne. Because it has a glacier at the 10,000-foot summit, there is snow all year round, so it is really a thrill to go up in the summer time and play, especially for us Hawaiians. It is very easy to get there. Take the scenic train one hour to Engelberg, enjoying beautiful views of the mountains, farms and villages along the way. At one section this becomes a rack railway, where the train gears engage a metal strip between the rails and pull the train up the steep incline, giving you a chance to walk the aisle leaned over at 45 degrees, if you want to clown around. In Engelberg follow the signs and walk a couple hundred yards to the cable car lift that will take you on the 45-minute ride up the mountain. The combined rail and lift ticket costs about $60. Mount Titlis provides a spectacular view into the heart of the Alps, with lofty peaks of the Jungfrau, Munch and Eiger visible in the distant Bernese Oberland on a clear day. The Titlis viewing platform at 10,000 feet has an elaborate multi-storied restaurant, café and gift shop complex, along with an ice tunnel into the glacier. In typical Swiss fashion, they have civilized this mountain peak like so many other similar perches in their realm. You can walk right onto the glacier from the panorama terrace and frolic in the snow. It is cold enough that the snow never melts, but in the summer with typical sunshine you will feel comfortable with just a light jacket. There are also some big inner tubes you can ride down a side hill. For more fun on the trip down, get off the cable car at the next-to-last stop and rent a scooter ($5) to coast down the final mile. We return to town the same way, enjoying the scenery a second time in reverse, or take a snooze. We will be back in town before 3:00pm, which leaves some time for more shopping, or to take a boat ride. Depending on your interests, you could save the boat for tomorrow, which gives you more time for a longer excursion. If you would just like a short two-hour ride, now is a good time. The boat docks are right in front of the train station, with frequent departures. Check their exact schedules on-line at www.lakelucerne.ch. You can spend a very pleasant afternoon enjoying a boat ride on Lake Lucerne. Various pleasure boats operate on the lake, and you can ride them 45 minutes across the water to the little villages of Weggis and Vitznau. Each of these towns have a number of cafes along the water where you could have lunch or afternoon tea while waiting for the next boat back to Lucerne. OTHER OPTIONS: Boat ride, and more exploring in town. PILATUS: A superb combination boat and funicular ride brings you on an optional trip to Mt. Pilatus, the mountain that towers over Lucerne. Take the boat from the dock in front of the Lucerne train station to Alpnachstad, which takes one hour and ten minutes, then ride up the world’s steepest cog-wheel railway to the top of Pilatus for a sweeping view of the lake and Lucerne. They do have a nice rustic restaurant, and there is even a hotel at the top. You could return the same way, or for a slightly faster alternative with a different routing, take the cable car down the back side of the mountain to Kriens, and walk a few blocks to the city bus stop that will whisk you back into town.

A favorite summertime excursion in Switzerland is a train ride that moves from the cool shores of Lake Lucerne to the airy summit of 2,100-metre-high Mount Pilatus. The trip is spectacular as the cars climb slopes as steep as 48% at times. A ride inside the conductor cab. (Raffaella Rossello, swissinfo.ch) Less
