If you find yourself in Lucerne and the sky is clear then head up to the top of Mount Rigi! We took the train up and the cable car back down to get all the possible views from the trip. What a spectacular view of the town and surrounding mountains. We switched our plans to take advantage of the clear... More

Mt. Rigi is definately a worth place to visit. It has an extremely beautiful view,overlooking several other mountains. The trip up the mountain is an adventure itself. Sking is also available at the mountain. I rented the ski equipments at a much cheaper price than at Mt. Titlis,almost 1/4 cheaper! Riding the cable cars down the mountain also provides a... More

A picturesque view on your way up or down using cable car or train, a must visit if you are in Lucerne.

We took the train from Arth Goldau to Rigi Kulm, did the walk down to Rigi Kaltbad, the cablecar to Weggis and the boat to Lucerne. With nice weather it is a majestic tour that shows stunning views!

This is one of the best tours in Switzerland. Nice boat trip with great views, then the 10 mins walk through the village is great. Then the Cog wheel train to the top of the mountain. Try a locally produced Ice Creams while listening to the sound of the cow bells. what a place.

I have posted two pictures to show you the sort of view you get on a good day here. This is one of the reasons we came here, to see and experience this view, and we were not disappointed at all. I will let the pictures speak for themselves - and hope the panorama shots are shown ok, otherwise you'll... More

One of the top most points on the Alps is not only scenic but a journey to Mt. Rigi is quite enjoyable and memorable.

Went there with a local Swiss friend. Took a boat ride about 1hr from Lake Luzern and then took a cogwheel train up to Mount Rigi. Beautiful view and a romantic place to be in cos its not as highly populated with tourists unlike Mt Pilatus, Mt titlis or Jungfrau. One of the best place for couples. Make sure you... More

Take the train to the top, Rigi Kulm, and from there take on of the toboggan tracks down to the station at Klösterli, and up again with the train and so on. With perfect powdery snow conditions the slope was a blast, wide enough to allow for overtaking, steep enough to get some adrenaline kicking speed, curvy enough, that you... More
