Weggis Vitznau Rigi
The Lucerne Riviera
The most convenient way to reach the summit of Mt. Rigi is to take the Vitznau-Rigi cog railway, which was Europe's first-ever mountain railway.
This holiday region has made a name for itself as one of the best addresses for wellness – in fact, it is an official 'Wellness Destination', with no fewer than six leading hotels offering superb spa facilities and amenities for restoring the harmony of mind and body. Owing to the many days of sunshine and the mild climate that encourages the flora of southern climes such as palms, orchids and chestnut trees, this region is known as the Lucerne Riviera. So why not recharge your batteries here, in the heart of Switzerland, a region that once counted Goethe, Queen Victoria and Mark Twain amongst its admirers?
