We went up to Rigi Kulm by cog railway and walked down to Rigi Kaltbad. The walk was easy and the views sensational. A must do if you're in Luzern.

Your experience begins with a cog railway ride to the top. Mark Twain and Queen Victoria have also visited here and when you are on the top you can understand why, beautiful views of lakes and mountains.

Wonderful visit to a smaller vista point mountain in the Alps area. Wonderful transport and fabulous Swiss dinner at the establishment of Herr Leo. I took some great photos and enjoyed this outing very much. I would go back for the music and the food and the kindness of our host at the restaurant!

We visited Mount Rigi and Lucerne during our April trip to Zurich. The day was very clear and we had fantastic views of the Alps. Since it was April, most of the snow had already melted.

When we visited Lucerne it was start of a winter and were not sure if we could visit any of the peaks during this time. But fortunately the cogwheel train to mt. rigi was working and we could visit... More

It hard to describe this trip, the views are gorgeous you enjoy every second of the trio to the mountain. It worth every cent you pay.
