Called the QUEEN of mountains by some people. Google "Mount Rigi Views" and you might know why....Tickets ain't cheap, but going to the top with either option is well worth it. This should be combined with a bit of hiking up in those mountains. Enjoy.

We took the cog train to the top of Mt. Rigi. There is a nice view of Lake Lucerne from the top, and the alps. It was chilly when we were up there (in August), so wear a jacket.
