Description

Enjoy a full-day excursion to the beautiful Mount Rigi, Switzerland's mountain gem. Travel by aerial cable car and cogwheel train while taking in stunning views of the Swiss Alps and its lakes. A boat cruise on the picturesque Lake Lucerne rounds off your day.

Hop on board your comfortable coach and cross the Albis Pass, along the shores of Lake Lucerne. Reach Rigi Kaltbad by cable car and take the cogwheel train, the first mountain railway in Europe, to the top of Rigi Mountain some 1,800 metres (6,000 feet) up.

The panoramic view to the Swiss-Midland, the Alps and the 13 lakes around you is overwhelming. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and capture this astonishing landscape with your camera.

Spend some free time here before taking a cogwheel train to Vitznau. Admire the area's natural beauty as you take a relaxing boat cruise along Lake Lucerne. Complete your experience with a stroll through the charming Old Town of Lucerne and see the famousChapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Town-Hall. Further recommendations are a visit to the Swiss Museum of Transport, the biggest museum in Switzerland or for art lovers the Rosengart Museum with works of the famous artists Picasso and Paul Klee. In the evening, meet your guide again for the coach journey back to Zürich.

曇ってて山頂から風景が全く見えませんでした。天気が良いと最高なんでしょうけど...天気は予測できないですからね

The trip was really nice. As others said, you are on your own for the whole time outside of the bus. You are given tickets for the cable car and boat. A "map" is also provided detailing how to do everything and the times. When getting on the boat, you need to exchange your voucher at the ticket window and they will give you a ticket. Mt Rigi is very beautiful, and the scenery is amazing. You can hear the cowbells from so far away. The cable car up took about 5 minutes. The cogwheel train then takes you up the rest of the way. Take the same one down to the bottom of the mountain. It takes quite a while. The boat dock is right there at the bottom after you get off the train. Boat ride was nice, buy a bit crowded. Time in Lucerne is limited, so you can see most of the things near the train station. The bus to take you back to Zurich will be on some side street. Its on the "map". Overall, the trip was worth it. We would gladly use this tour agency again.
