Overview

Go where the Swiss go and visit marvelous Mount Rigi! Discover the different means of transportation as the aerial cable car and Europe’s first ever mountain railway and relish the amazing view over 13 lakes and the magnificent alpine panorama. Enjoy a boat ride on beautiful Lake Lucerne and visit the charming Old Town of Lucerne.

The journey starts with a lovely coach ride crossing the Albis Pass and along beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons to Weggis, a charming summer resort on the shores of the lake. Board the aerial cable car to Rigi Kaltbad where you change to Europe‘s first ever mountain railway up to the summit Rigi-Kulm (1800m).

The unsurpassed views from the top of this majestic mountain to the midland with its deep blue lakes and the snowcapped mountain range will overwhelm you! A variety of well-prepared hiking trails invite for a walk and cozy alpine restaurants offer a decent selection of typical, hearty meals all accompanied by the amazing alpine panorama.

In winter, you might fancy renting a sledge and zoom down the valley. In the afternoon, descent by cogwheel train to Vitznau and board the public boat for a lovely one-hour cruise on the picturesque Lake of the Four Cantons towards Lucerne. Enjoy a stroll on the medieval streets of the charming Old Town and see the famous Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Town-Hall.

Further recommendations are a visit to the Swiss Museum of Transport, the biggest museum in Switzerland or for art lovers the Rosengart Museum with works of the famous artists Picasso and Paul Klee. In the evening, meet your guide again for the coach journey back to Zürich.

Our professional, multi-lingual guide accompanies the tour from Zürich to Weggis and from Lucerne to Zürich. The way up and down Mt. Rigi and the boat ride to Lucerne are unguided. For this part, you receive detailed, written information.

*Seasonal programme changes:

09.03. – 09.04.2020 & 16. – 27.11.2020: due to aerial cable car revision, ascent by cogwheel train

Experience of a lifetime... The weather was awesome, there were almost no crowds, and the views are really breathtaking. The best thing is, this doesn't feel like a full-fledged tourist destination.
