Pilatus Things to Do: 26 reviews and 104 photos
The Mount Pilatus brochure says that the mountain is called Pilatus after Pontius Pilote who's ghost was thought to inhabit the mountain peaks.
At 7000 Ft or 2132m above sea level, it is high enough up there that you are often in the clouds, and the views are not always as clear as they are in the brochures. Nonetheless there are two hotels, and a number of restaurants up there.
Also, since we visited, they have added some cool stuff. An adult suspension rope climbing park, and a summer toboggan slide (part way up).
As you can see from my pictures, there are some hikes that start from the hotel. One short one goes to the top of Esel, one of the mountain peaks up there.
