Visit Mt. Rigi, one of Switzerland’s most popular excursion destinations. The different transportation methods you will use make this excursion a true adventure.

You will travel over the Albis Pass to Weggis, and then take a cable car to Rigi Kaltbad and reach Rigi-Kulm (5,900ft a.s.l.) with Europe’s first cogwheel train. Enjoy a lovely view of the Swiss Midlands and a stunning Alpine panorama.

In winter, it is possible to enjoy a sleigh ride as well (optional).

Then, you will descend to the valley with the cogwheel train to Vitznau, from where a relaxing boat cruise (1 hour) will take you back to Lucerne. There, you can explore the city on your own.

The trip up Mt. Rigi (from Weggis), the ride down to the valley (to Vitznau) and the boat cruise are unaccompanied by a tour guide, but you will receive printed literature and explanations beforehand from your guide.
