Snowshoe hiking on Pilatus


Three signposted snowshoe trails link Krienseregg and Fräkmüntegg. These routes are all classed as easy, making them suitable for families and snowshoe beginners alike.
This circular hike takes just under two hours to complete and offers glorious views over the city of Lucerne and Lake Lucerne. If you fancy a delicious snack along the way, we recommend stopping at Berghaus Dorschnei.

Starting from Kriens, snowshoe hikers can take a cable car to Fräkmüntegg. The trail to Krienseregg takes one and a half hours to complete, with just one gentle ascent. Hikers can stop off at Berghaus Rickenschwändi to boost their energy levels.

This circular trail can be completed in a morning and features moderate ascents, making it ideal for the whole family. The route boasts panoramic views of Lucerne, Lake Lucerne and the Pre-Alps. At the end of the trail, head into Restaurant Fräkmüntegg to enjoy a hot chocolate or a cup of coffee.
