Amazing experience and panoramic views! Along the way we enjoyed the transport, the different stop off points, the cafes, the buildings, animals (cows with their traditional bells and birds of prey), people watching, the change in temperature (take warmer clothes for the last climb and...More

For some of the most beautiful views of Lake Lucerne and the Alps, visit Mt. Rigi. We were there May 6, 2017, and there was still plenty of snow. From Lucerne, take the lake tour boat to Vitznau, then board the cog train and start...More

We had already gone to the top of Mt Schilthorn in the Berner Oberland region, so if you had to choose between this one and the various excursions to a snow covered mountain top then I'm not sure how to advise you (because those experiences...More

Perfect day trip from Lucern for those who like some adventure and not crowds. Easy to get to via the ferry across from train station. Excellent views, peace and quiet.

We took the rack railway from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm. It's a beautiful and scenic 35min ride to the top. The railway staff was exceptionally friendly and seemed to have great fun working for the raillway.

I was wondering with the Swiss Pass if it is possible to stop at different points on the ascent to Rigi Kulm? For example, I am thinking of stopping at the Kanzeli point and/or near Rotstock. Is it possible to get off then back on to the final point of Rigi Kulm? Thank you.
