Visit Mount Rigi in 2024

Situated between Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug, and Lake Lauerz, Mount Rigi is an iconic natural landmark in Switzerland. The mountain is renowned not just for its breathtaking views, but also for its rich history as one of the earliest tourist destinations in Switzerland, drawing visitors since the 18th century.
The cogwheel railway, which first began its operations in 1871, is a testament to this history and remains one of the primary attractions for visitors. It is, in fact, the first mountain cogwheel railway in Europe. The journey aboard this historic train, passing through picturesque landscapes, is as exhilarating as the destination itself.
For those who prefer a closer connection with nature, Rigi offers a plethora of hiking and walking trails suitable for all levels. In winter, the mountain transforms into a snowy paradise, attracting skiers and snowboarders.
Spas and wellness hotels at the base offer relaxation after a day of outdoor exertions, and for those interested in culture, there are local cheese dairies and charming chalets that provide a glimpse into Swiss mountain life.
A visit to Mount Rigi promises not just scenic beauty but a holistic experience that encompasses Swiss history, culture, wellness, and a plethora of outdoor activities.
