Mt. Rigi, Lucerne

(4.8/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by three lakes, Mt. Rigi once inspired painter J.M.W. Turner to create a series of works studying its changing views and blue sunrises. Known to many as the "Queen of the Mountains," the Alpine massif features a towering summit 1,798 m (5,898 ft) above sea level. A year-round tourist destination served by one of Europe's oldest mountain railways, the idyllic region draws a growing number of nature lovers with an extensive network of walking trails and ski slopes. Gear up and tackle the mountain's hiking paths all the way to the summit, or sit back and enjoy the sweeping views on the cable car that departs from the small town of Kussnacht. Put Mt. Rigi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lucerne tourist route planner.

  • The little train that part next to Lake Lucerne, take the tourist to the top of the Rigi, through a fantastic landscape to the top, where you can spend some time and take a walk or simply enjoy the scenery.
