What to expect

Explore Mount Rigi on a fully guided majestic roundtrip from Lucerne! Experience different means of transportation on a scenic cruise on Lake Lucerne, a memorable ride with Europe’s first-ever mountain railway and an aerial cable car. Take in the stunning 360-degree panoramic view of the Swiss Alps and opt for one of the many hiking trails against a vast mountain backdrop.

Start your day with a relaxing one-hour cruise on the picturesque Lake Lucerne to Vitznau. Change onto Europe’s first-ever mountain railway dating from 1871 and set out on the journey to the top, Rigi Kulm. From 1.797 meters above sea level, let your gaze wander over the lowlands with 13 lakes and a sea of 620 Alpine peaks. Enjoy some time at your disposal to explore one of the many hiking trails, to take in a moment of silence at the Rigi Kulm mountain chapel or to have a bite to eat at one of the restaurants.

Continue to the car-free village of Rigi Kaltbad by cogwheel train and take a stroll across the village square, where you will spot the Mineralbad & Spa designed by the renowned Swiss architect Mario Botta – a true jewel for architecture lovers! Follow an easy hiking trail with a slight incline to the Känzeli viewing platform (2 km, optional) and admire the impressive Alpine ranges from a different perspective.

Descend by aerial cable car and enjoy an impressive vista of the pristine Lake Lucerne. Take a short walk downhill to the boat station of Weggis, once referred to by Mark Twain as the “most charming place” and capture the breathtaking view from the Lucerne Riviera with your camera. Board the boat back to Lucerne and lean back while reviewing your day in front of an incomparable natural scenery.
