The trip alone to the top was fun. We didn't get to see the view because it was cloudy the day we went up, but judging from the pictures we saw, it must really be a spectacular view from the top. The cogwheel train from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm took around an hour and would stay for 15 minutes at... More

If you are only going to do one walk in the Lucern area, Mt Rigi is it ! With many different trails, you can choose to overlook the lake or the animals feeding in the valley. Rigi offers easy enough trails accessible to wheelchairs or young ones which is a real asset. The numerous alpine restaurants serve "mountain" food: sausage... More

If you visit Mt Rigi after say Titlis/ Schilthorn/ Jungfraujoch you will be disappointed, but stand alone its a good half day trip (and you dont pay a penny if you have a swiss pass!) where the journey is probably more scenic than the view from the top.WE visited Rigi from Lucerne. there are 2 routes to Rigi one via...

Everything about this trip was great - the boat ride, train ride and even the food at the restaurant at the top. And the best part was that there was snow at the top end of March. We had a wonderful time

I am a great outdoor enthusiast, but my only problem is that I have some chronic illness that, if it intensifies randomly, I need to be back in civilization ASAP. I cannot afford to be lost alone in the wild. Rigi was the answer to all my problems. Rigi is like a big immaculate park in the city, but made... More

Sorry but having lived in Himalayas, the natural beauty of Switzerland seems overrated. Mount Rigi or Pilatus area has peaks much lower than what I have seen. Not saying that these are not nice and beautiful but if I had to make a choice, I would go to Himalayas next time. Yes, one thing which Switzerland should be praised for... More

The ride on the train to the top is breathtaking. Lot of skiing and tobaganning options available. Very well marked routes and decently maintained slopes made my first ever toganning experience memorable. The views from the Kulm was absolutely breathtaking!

This local mountain offers a panoramic view of the surrounding alps. I liked that there were a variety of paths to get to the top from three separate towns and two methods of climb; cogwheel train and/or hanging gondola. If in the Luzern area, do not miss the chance to grab a life-long memory at the top of either Pilatus... More

We took a day trip from Lucerne to Mount Rigi in early March. The whole trip, which would have been over CHF100 each, was covered by the Swiss Pass. Our party of 4 consisted of 1 elderly and 1 adult non-skier, and 1 teen and 1 adult skier. We all loved our day at Rigi. We took the boat to... More
