The next day, we went to visit Pilatus, the highest mountain at the Vierwaldstättersee (I visited Rigi, with my parents many years ago, so I wanted mto save that for a later occasion, should we decide to visit this region of Switzerland again).
Of couse, we arrived just late for a departure of the cogwheel train going to the summit, so we had to kill over half an hour. Luckily, there is stuff to see an photograph in Alpnachstad.

Finally on the train.

Walking up to the 'Esel'
And, here we are, 2118,7 metres above sea level. Actually, Esel is about 10 m lower than the Tomlishorn (2128,5 m) but there was a substantially longer walk there.
Walking down again.

And, finally, going down again with the train. If you plan to visit her, bear in mind that it is rather expensive to use the train - we paid about £150 for the four of us.
