The Heart of Switzerland

Just the trip up there is an adventure, The views are breathtaking and if you're staying long enough the sunsets are awesome, especially on cloudy days.

The cable car takes you up the 1st part of the mountain, it was nice although very crowded inside, then you take the train to the very top which was a much nicer ride. You can stop along the way and hike up along the pathways too. The views from the top are of course fantastic and getting to breathe... More

We took train up to the top. The view is magnificent, You can see snow capped alps in the distance. We took the cable cart down which is a nice alternative.

The trip up on the cog rail and down on the cable car to Weggis were fabulous. Unfortunately as we past Kaltbad station the cloud started to build and was totally covered by the time we reached the top. But glimpses of the view below the cloud were fabulous and we know it would have been amazing from the top... More

I preferred this rather than the popular mt, titlis. The cog train ride was super fun specially with lots of snow around. You get a good view of the lake and city. However you don't have eternal snow like in mt. Titlis. On top, you enter a cave and at the end is a lift which takes you to a... More

A beautiful boat ride from Lucern and then a fun train ride up to the summit. Fantastic views of the alps if it's not a foggy day. Two different hiking trails down the mountain, an easier one for kids and strollers and a not too difficult one for more experienced walkers/hikers. Lots of cows to see and photograph.

We had been to Mt. Titlis and Pilatus and this doesn't compare to those two. However, you do get great views of the lakes and Lucerne. Very crowded as there was a function going on at the time. One thing to be alert off are the correct train to take back down. There are many different lines up there. Note... More

We caught the train up from Arth Goldau, although started from the signposted car park which is one stop up from the main station. It is easier to park here but on a busy day the train might then be rather full, so consider starting at the main station. Also, the trains only run once an hour so plan ahead.... More

Fantastic views and we enjoyed the trip up. Love the way that you step off a boat straight onto a train up the mountain. Plenty of space to walk and enjoy the views.

In Mt. Rigi, it was our first day of playing sledge in Swiss. There were heavy snow when we reached the summit. It looks little bit dangerous. But sledge over there was fantastic for a biginner like us. It was great thrill.
