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.

Amazing views and a lot of attractions. Cogwheel train, ferry, cable car travel - my son and wife loved it. Great views everywhere, especially on the top. Good food in the restaurant on the top.

This is one of the "must do" things for many people - so the attraction gets busy at times. Avoid the mid-morning boat trips to Vitznau. Travel later and enjoy the scenery more. Go up one way and down the other.More

The entire transport system is tied up so seamlessly that inspite of all the different modes, water, cogwheel and later the cable car ride back are beautifully tied up giving us enough space to walk and enjoy nature. Entirely worth it.

If you are traveling lake Como by train, you will pass via Arth -Goldau, the cog wheel train station to visit the Rigi is at the station, so it would be quite direct for you.

If you arrive early, take from Zurich Flughafen to Luzern (download SBB App for detailed transfer info), then take boat at Lucerne to Vitznau for funicular to the peak.
