Since 1871 the first mountain train in Europe has been carrying passengers from Vitznau to Mt. Rigi. Locomotives and cars from years gone by were lovingly and professionally restored. Today, the Rigi railways have one of the largest vintage fleets in the world.

The steam engine and nostalgic cars make the trip to the “Queen of the Mountains” an exclusive adventure, even in the winter.


Every Saturday and Sunday from July to September.

On selected weekends in the winter (starting in Vitznau)
