Went via a tour company on a sunny Sunday morning in late September, and the weather could not have been more perfect. First, a cable car ride then via cogwheel train passing by magnificent views of the Swiss alps and countryside. And as if that was not enough, I was treated to a fantastic view of Lucerne from the top.... More

The different way of getting of the summit. One is the newest and breathtaking, the other is the oldtimer and breathtaking. If you want to try both start the Seilbahn in Weggis and change for the Rigibahn at Kaltbad. It is absolutely a fantastic combination.

We were undecided like most whether to go upto Mount Rigi or Mount Pilatus during our day trip to Lucerne from Interlaken. We decided to go unto the summit of Mount Rigi for various reasons. Mount Rigi is first of all free with the Swiss pass unlike other mountains. The scenery of Lake Lucerne going towards Mount Rigi is also... More

The views from the top are amazing and even though the weather the day we were there was very changeable we enjoyed ourselves.

Great days to spend a couple of hours, the journey can be broken into 3 pieces. 1st a steamer from Lucerne, then a cable car & finally a cog wheel to take to you the top. You can do the same on the way back, or walk down a part of the way. The steamer leaves from the pier bang... More

Fun trip up by train and down by gondola. Amazing views. We went on a wet cloudy day and the views when the clouds broke were spectacular. A very pleasant walk from the top following the railway line till you decide to catch the train ( we walked to the gondola station)

The views are 360, it is a great day excursion from Luzern. We caught the ferry from Luzern to Vitznau then the cog rail to Rigi Klum which is the highest point. Thanks to another reviewer who advised to sit on the station side in the cog train & I would like to add to that - also sit not... More

We took the 9:00 am boat from Lucerne to Weggis and then the cog rail to Mt. Rigi. It was cool and grey so we stopped and had a hot drink at the hotel before going on up to the highest point. Sadly we could only see 8 lakes but what wasn't hidden by the clouds was very beautiful. Coming... More

Finally we had a late lunch at Weggis and... More
