Overview
More
Mount Rigi's majestic peninsula on Lake Lucerne is the perfect setting for an authentic Swiss mountain experience with unforgettable views of over 13 lakes and the spectacular snow-capped Swiss Alps. Located in the heart of Switzerland, Mt. Rigi can be quickly and easily reached from Lucerne and Zurich. It is the Swiss people's favourite mountain destination, can be accessed via Europe's first ever cogwheel train (est. 1871) and is renowned for its numerous cogwheel railway and aerial cable car routes. You can visit Mt. Rigi 365 days a year and there's plenty of outdoor action on offer, including 120km of hiking trails. The numerous lookouts, delightful terraces and the Mineral Baths at Rigi Kaltbad also ensure there are plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation on the Queen of the Mountains.

It's often cloudy in Luzern in the winter. We took the boat to Vitzneau and rack-rail to Rigi and just rose above the clouds into brilliant sunshine. A fun day trip from Luzern.

We spent a week in the area and didn't exhaust the possibilities. trams can ease the uphills, and make circuit hikes easy to plan.

I visited this peak in 2005. It was my first ride on a Swiss mountain cable car - scary! There is an easy enjoyable paved pathway down from the peak back to the cable car station. Great views all the way.More
