As soon as they arrive in Switzerland, the B.H.M.S. students, apart from the high quality education they receive, they also have the opportunity to get to know Switzerland and explore most of its beauties.
That’s why their first excursion is at the Mount Pilatus!
Did you know that Pilatus Mountain is one of the most legendary places in Central Switzerland?
The jaw-dropping landscape at 2’132 m above sea level is one of the great reasons to visit this place!
There are a few different local legends about the origin of the mountain's name.
One claims that Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea who presided over the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, was buried there and that’s how it took its name, while another legend says that dragons used to live there. Also because of its shape, since is the mountain looks like the belly of a large man, many believe that this man is Pilate lying on his back and was thus named from him. The name may also be derived from "pileatus," meaning "cloud-topped."
This amazing place in Switzerland offers students an unforgettable experience either they visit it on summer or winter and when they visit the Mount Pilatus, they get a first taste of how the country they chose to study looks like!
