Owner description: Mount Rigi's majestic peninsula on Lake Lucerne is the perfect setting for an authentic Swiss mountain experience with unforgettable views of over 13 lakes and the spectacular snow-capped Swiss Alps. Located in the heart of Switzerland, Mt. Rigi can be quickly and easily reached from Lucerne and Zurich. It is the Swiss people's favourite mountain destination, can be accessed via Europe's first ever cogwheel train (est. 1871) and is renowned for its numerous cogwheel railway and aerial cable car routes. You can visit Mt. Rigi 365 days a year and there's plenty of outdoor action on offer, including 120km of hiking trails. The numerous lookouts, delightful terraces and the Mineral Baths at Rigi Kaltbad also ensure there are plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation on the Queen of the Mountains.

We went to Weggis by Ferry and then to Rigi by Cable car and train. the whole place is awesome, including Rigi Kulm and Rigi Katbald. Layers of snow and greenery. Though a lot of Koreans were there, don't know why.

I has a Switzerland all day travel pass so I decided to go to Lucerne. The sun was out so I headed out on a boat across the lake to Vitznau. On my way I saw that there is a cog train to the top of my Rigi about 1700 Meyers high. I would recommend the trip for the panoramic views and stunning vistas on the boat, the train and at the top.

Wonderful view you will enjoy. Must go someday again. But weather is very important. When I was there it was little cloudy but still very beautiful. When it is sunny and clear day it would be perfect.

superb place to go to - the cog rail train is steep .. really steep .. and the moment you reach abt 300-400 mtrs up the mountain, you get teh breathtaking view of the lake beneath ... everyone on the train let out a sigh .. even if they have seen it umpteen number of times .. the view at the top is mond boggling - you are eitehr floating in the clouds or above them :)

We did what most people do. Caught a lake steamer and then a funicular to the top. Fantastic views. We then walked part the wa\y down recatching the funicular to the bottom. Very enjoyable day
