Description

Your Mount Rigi small-group self-guided day ticket grants access to one of Switzerland's most famous mountains. A preferred outing for families, hikers or lovers of a relaxing day in nature, the mountain lays like a peninsula within Lake Lucerne and Lake Zug, right in the heart of Switzerland. It is very easily connected from Lucerne by boat, train or private car to Vitznau or Weggis, and from Zurich by direct train line or highway A4 to Arth-Goldau. The 360-degree views from the top are stunning and the countless optional activities provide full relaxation for everybody.

Hop on the cogwheel train in Vitznau, Europe's first mountain railway, which brings you to the top of Rigi Kulm, aka ‘Queen of the Mountains.’ The mountain top provides countless panoramic views overlooking Lake Lucerne. Topping the Rigi mountain range at 5,899 feet (1,798 meters) in elevation, the summit boasts unbeatable views of the Swiss Plateau with the Bernese Alps, Vosges Mountains, Black Forest and Glarus Alps beyond. Take a short stroll around the top of the mountain to immerse yourself in the 360-degree panorama over countless lakes or just enjoy the sun and endless wide view on one of the many wellness benches. Spend your time on a hiking trail, or grab lunch in one of the cozy restaurants along the many hiking trails (activities and food are your own expense).

When it’s time, the cogwheel train transports you down to the mountain resort of Rigi Kaltbad. From an altitude of 4,701 feet (1,433 meters), it’s the perfect vantage point over Lake Lucerne. Board the aerial cable car from here and drift down to the pretty lakeside town of Weggis. 

If you prefer to discover another cogwheel train and route, you can also hop on the train to Goldau, where you have countless direct railway connections up to Zurich (37 minutes), Lucerne (28 minutes), or others.

You can also start and end your tour in Goldau or Weggis. Your ticket provides unlimited rides on the three services for the whole day and you are able to choose your route according to your wishes.
