We took a day trip from Luzern - boat to Vitznau, then cog railway to the top - Rigi Kulm, for wonderful views. Stopped at Rigi Kaltbad for lunch (in the sun - in February), then the cable car down to Weggis, where we picked up a return boat to Luzern. A great day out.

Unfortunately we timed our visit for winter and the winds closed most of the mountains during our visit - but we managed to go up Mt Rigi on our last day. It was fabulous! It was about -12 degrees in the wind but we finally got to see snow! The cable car ride up the mountain was great - quite... More

Even on a cloudy day the view from Rigi was amazing, as you find yourself lifted up and over the clouds to blue sky regardless. The cogwheel train up is a completely unique experience and makes the peak accessible for everyone! The restaurant at the top is decent too :-)

This is such a gorgeous journey via cogwheel to the top of Mt Rigi. The views are simply stunning and the air is fresh and clean. Mountains as far as the eye can see and the world seems so small when you are up there.

Went up on the little train. At the top we had lunch and cold drinks. Amazing views. You can get on and off the train at different stops. Terrific day out.

No surprising about its altitude, but spellbound of its stunning landscapes of swiss alps. It's a definitely a treat to enjoy mother nature. ferry on lake luzerne and a cog wheel train ride to rigi are purely enjoyable. Might need half a day to slowly enjoy the different view points. I made it at the closure of winter.. Simply amazing... More
