Mount Rigi is a mountain in central Switzerland, bordering Lucerne, and part of the Swiss Alps. It's also known as the "Queen of the Mountains.” Rigi offers stunning panoramic views and is famous for its beautiful sunrises. Nowadays, the mountain is easily accessible by public transportation. It offers many winter and summer excursions such as skiing, sledding, or hiking.

It has been popular with adventurous, romantic travellers for quite some time (before the advent of public transportation), including Mark Twain more than a century ago. The Rigi has been immortalized through paintings by JMW Turner, including "The Blue Rigi, Lake of Lucerne, Sunrise".

Practical Info

You can access Mount Rigi via steamboat from Lucerne to Vitznau and then the cogwheel train up to "Rigi-Kulm." Enjoy the view and take a ride back to Rigi-Kaltbad and from there the cable car to Weggis where you can go back to Lucerne by boat.
