Mountain Rigi is one of Switzerland’s most favorite excursion destinations.
The panoramic view over the entire Swiss Middle land through to Germany and France from the peak is truly breathtaking. Since 1871, Europe’s first ever mountain railway takes visitors to the Rigi. The railways from Vitznau and Goldau and the aerial cablecar from Weggis provide an eventful journey.
In the summer, more than 120 kilometers of well maintained hiking trails with rich alpine flora and breathtaking views over lakes and mountains invite you to explore nature. Besides concerts and events the mountain Rigi offers sunrise views train trips, botanical excursions as well as guided hiking tours.
In the winter the snow can be enjoyed at toboggan rides under the starlit sky or guided snow shoe hikes.
