Mt. Rigi - one of Switzerland's most famous mountains and the preferred outing for families, hikers or lovers of a relaxing day in the nature. The mountain lays like a peninsula within Lake Lucerne and Lake Zug, right in the heart of Switzerland. It is very easy connected from Lucerne by boat, train or private car to Vitznau or Weggis, and from Zurich by direct train line or highway A4 to Arth-Goldau. The 360-degree views from the top are outragous and the countless optional activities are a full relaxation for everybody.

Hop on the cogwheel train in Vitznau - which is also Europe's first mountain railway - that brings you right up to the top of Rigi Kulm, aka ‘Queen of the Mountains.’ Already the journey to the top will fill your eyes with countelss panoramic views overlooking lake Lucerne. Topping the Rigi mountain range at 5,899 feet (1,798 meters) in elevation, the summit boasts unbeatable views of the Swiss Plateau with the Bernese Alps, Vosges mountains, Black Forest and Glarus Alps beyond, and on foggy days, it offers sunny views over the sea of fog. Take a short stroll around the top of the mountain to immerse in the 360-degree panorama over countless lakes or just enjoy the sun and endless wide view on one of the many wellness benches. If you selected this tour, you are free in your time and can choose what you would like to do - e.g. embark on an easy and well prepared winter walking trail, rent a sledge or some snow shoes or grab lunch in one of the cozy restaurants (activities and food are your own expense).

When it’s time, the cogwheel train transports you down to the mountain resort of Rigi Kaltbad. From an altitude of 4,701 feet (1,433 meters), it’s the perfect vantage point over Lake Lucerne. Board the aerial cable car from here and drift down to the pretty lakeside town of Weggis. 

If you prefer to discover another coghweel train and route, you can also hop on the train into direction "Goldau", from where you have countless direct railway connections up to Zurich (37 min), Lucerne (28 min) or others.
*Please note - up on your individual planning, you can also start and end your tour in Goldau or Weggis. The ticket entitles you for unlimited rides on the three services during the whole day and you are able to choose your routing according to your wishes.

Tripping up to Rigikulm was great. We started on the cable car from Weggis and transferred to the cog train up to Rigikulm. It was blowing a gale up there and deep snow all about and still falling. Couldn't see much because we were in cloud, the wind blew us over and the temperature was way down but the hotel was warm and lunch good. The trip back down by cog train went smoothly and we enjoyed our day.
