What to expect

Go where Swiss people like to go and visit the beautiful 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 the beautiful Lake Lucerne and visit the charming Old Town of Lucerne.

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

The views from the top of this mountain on the midland with its deep blue lakes and the snowcapped mountain range will overwhelm you. A variety of well-prepared hiking trails will invite you for a walk and cozy alpine restaurants will offer a 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, you will 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. You will enjoy a stroll on the medieval streets of the charming Old Town and see the most famous attractions of Lucerne, like the famous Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Town-Hall.

Further recommendations of activities you can do in your spare time are a visit to the Swiss Museum of Transport, or to the Rosengart Museum, the biggest museum in Switzerland or for art lovers, with works of the famous artists Picasso and Paul Klee. In the evening, you will meet your guide again for the private vehicle journey back to Zürich.
