It was more than 4 hours hike to the top, although we didn’t begin from lowest part of the ascent. It was a vigorous but very fulfilling hike of the Alps, very rewarding with the beautiful landscapes and view of the lake and the Alps.

Called the QUEEN of mountains by some people. Google "Mount Rigi Views" and you might know why....Tickets ain't cheap, but going to the top with either option is well worth it. This should be combined with a bit of hiking up in those mountains. Enjoy.More

Yes you will have to pay to get up the mountain is the short answer, as the shortest Tell Pass is for two days (CHF 110). The cheapest way partly up the mountain is probably the Luftseilbahn Seebodenalp: train to Kussnacht... More
