Long but easy round tour on Lucerne's local mountain Pilatus (T3). The ridge walk from the Tomlishorn to the Mittaggüpfi is particularly beautiful.

Mount Pilatus is a small mountain massif south of Lucerne. The complex of buildings around the Pilatus Kulm mountain station with the peaks of Oberhaupt and Esel is commonly referred to as „Pilatus“ but the highest peak is actually the Tomlishorn, which lies somewhat further away.This circular hike leads from the north out of the Eigen valley, first to the panorama terrace of Pilatus Kulm and then along a ridge with a great view to the Tomlishorn Widderfeld. At the Widderfeld, the name says it all; with a bit of luck, you can observe stone beasts there. The ridge hike ends with a beautiful Rückblick über the ridge hike at the Gnepfstein/Mittaggüpfi. From there, you return to Eigenthal on forest and alpine paths.

Großartige Tour für den Frühling/ Frühsommer. Bei schönstem Wetter bin ich heute die Tour gegangen. Ich bin 7 Uhr am Parkplatz los und konnte in Ruhe zum Pilatus aufsteigen. Gegen 9.15 Uhr war ich oben und es herrschte bereits reges Treiben. Wie beschrieben war ab dem Tomlishorn absolute Ruhe. Ich traf nur noch ein Päärchen und einen einsamen Wanderer. In ein paar Rinnen, die man queren muss, liegt noch etwas Schnee. Stellt aber kein Problem dar. Gegen 15.30 Uhr war ich wieder am Auto. Danke für die schöne Beschreibung.
