Intro

This ideal excursion mountain impresses visitors with a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view – onto Lakes Lucerne, Zug and Lauerz among others.

In 1871, Europe’s first mountain railway made it to this striking viewing point. Today, two cog railways – one from Vitznau and one from Arth-Goldau – travel to the Rigi Kulm and its summit hotel. From Weggis, an aerial cableway leads directly to Rigi-Kaltbad. The summit view onto 13 lakes, into the Alps and towards the Black Forest delights guests from near and far.
By the way: Rigi is fully covered by the Swiss Travel Pass.
