“Day Trip from Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We took a day trip from Zurich. Our journey took us Zurich - Lucerne - Vitznau - Mt Rigi - Arth Godlau - Zurich.
We purchased tickets for the entire journey from Zurich HB on the day for 121 CHF each which also included a voucher for 10 CHF to be used at any of the restaurants on Rigi.
We took the 7:35am train from Zurich arriving in Lucerne at 8:30am. We walked around beautiful Lucerne before taking the ferry to Vitznau at 11:12am arriving at 12:10am. The cogwheel train conveniently departed at 12:15pm. The scenery was breathtaking on this journey. We arrived at the to of Rigi about an hour later. We used our vouchers and bought a delicious lunch in the cafeteria style restaurant and took in the scenery. An east day trip from zurich and Definitely worth a trip if you have time. We arrived back in Zurich at about 4:30pm.

“The Great Rigi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

To the hikers this is a paradise. the hiking path is very attractive in summer time. from the Luzern you can take ship to rich the base of the mountain. or you can go by train to arth-Goldau. from there you can take cog-wheel train to go top of the mountain.
you can enjoy a good view of lake luzern and the city from top of the mountain. many sports activity like paragliding on the mountain top.

“the only female mountain in Switzerland ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The mountain has several ways to access it. You have got almost a 360 degree view on the top and it is very close to Lucerne. It well known in Switzerland as the only female Mountain. All other have a male name ;-)
