As Switzerland's most visited mountain, Mt. Rigi has gained international fame. This became possible only after the mountain world was opened up by mountain trains. The Vitznau-Rigi-Bahn, a railroad running between Vitznau and Kaltbad, was opened on May 21, 1871. An extension to Mt. Kulm was presented to the public on June 27, 1873.

'Rigi: the Queen of the Mountains' is the slogan of the Rigi Train. And indeed, the view from the summit is fit for royalty. All the larger lakes of the area are visible from here. And the view reaches from Mt. Säntis in the East all the way to the Alps of Lake Geneva, taking in Mts.Titlis and Pilatus on the way.
