Aerial cableway “Dragon Ride”

Fast, lots of promise and innovation

Top performance and pioneer spirit yesterday – high capacity for innovation and investment today: The success story of the Pilatus is based on over 150 years of tradition in tourism. Nowadays investments link tradition to modernity.

FLYING FROM THE FRÄKMÜNTEGG ONTO THE PILATUS KULM

After the complete renovation of the hotel and gastronomy infrastructure on the mountain in 2009 and 2011, the PILATUS-BAHNEN AG invested another 18 million Swiss francs in this new aerial cableway (Fräkmüntegg – Pilatus Kulm). The centerpiece is two modern cabins which give passengers the sensation of flying. This stems from a roomy interior, a cockpit-like design and large windows. Construction work lasted a year and was finished in April 2015. Since then the “Dragon Ride” flies visitors from the Fräkmüntegg directly onto the Pilatus Kulm. The cabin's panoramic windows facilitate an unrivaled view of the mountains.
