Next, we'll travel by bus to the city of Kriens and then take a gondola and cable car to the summit of Mount Pilatus. Spend your free time at the top enjoying the dramatic Alpine vistas and charming mountain lodge. We'll then return to the hotel where dinner will be served this evening.

You'll soon see why this regal massif is known as the Queen of the Mountains! Enjoy plenty of time to take in the gorgeous scenery, before stopping for some lunch. Be sure to try the local dish of alpenmagronen. Made with potatoes, pasta, cheese and apple sauce, it's the perfect meal for refuelling.
In the afternoon, we'll journey back to Lucerne, passing through Arth-Goldau on the way. Back at the hotel, Christmas Eve will be marked with a special festive dinner.
