Mount Rigi – ” The Queen of Mountains” – was one of the very first destinations when the idea of tourism was developed in the early 1800s (Mark Twain already raved about his ascent to Mt. Rigi in his book “A Tramp Abroad”) and the first cog railway to the stop started operation in 1871(!)
Relive this classic and slow-paced style of travel as your nostalgic cogwheel train gently ascends past alpine pastures and grazing cows with tinkling bells. After arriving at the summit you’ll be rewarded with awesome 360° panoramic views. It’s a truly majestic place! The combination of the snow-capped Alps, the lowlands with 13 lakes, views ranging from Germany to France and a bird’s-eye view of the cities of Lucerne and Zug, makes this perspective truly unique.
