“The exquisitely renovated Hotel Pilatus-Kulm outside of Lucerne,
Switzerland, is nestled into a rocky ridge and accessible only by
gondola or by a 30-minute ride on the world’s steepest cogwheel train.
It has miles of hiking trails and epic panoramas—and only the faint
tinkling of cowbells and the hint of distant city lights to remind you
that the world is still moving along 7,000 feet below.”—VIRGINIA
