Lucerne

Mount Rigi

Mount Rigi (from regina, Latin for queen) is famous for spectacular views of the Alps and its easy access. The majestic mountain lies between Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz. The cogwheel railway leaving from Vitznau was Europe's first mountain railway. At the top there are several restaurants and around 35km of winter hiking trails. You can also ski and sledge up there - they have around 10km of slopes, four ski lifts and a rental shop. You can descend on the other side with the aerial cable car from Rigi Kaltbad to Weggis and make it a round trip, by boat from Lucerne to Vitznau and return from Weggis. The train and bus connection to Vitznau takes about one hour, by ship it's just as fast.
