The VAC spring hike will take place around the Pilatus at the Vierwaldstättersee (close to Luzern). We will meet at Zürich HB (train main station) in front of platform 7 on Saturday, June 9th at 8:20 AM to take the train (IR 70, 8:35) to Lucerne and then the Pilatusbahn to Krienseregg. From there will make our way up to Fräkmüntegg. After a break and enjoying the scenic view on the Vierwaldstättersee and the Pilatus we will continue to the Eigenthal / Eigenthalerhof and will have some scenic views on the Unesco biosphere Entlebuch and the Emmentaler Alpen. We will return to Zurich around 6-7 PM.
