Take a ride on Europe’s oldest mountain railway on your next day trip to the Rigi. The ride and views of Lake Lucerne are stunning. The Rigi is a mountain where you can hike, relax and swim, as well as sledge and ski in winter. Exercise and fresh air are enough to make anyone hungry: barbecue spots and restaurants are open all year round.
Located in the Lake Lucerne Region, the Rigi is easily accessible from all directions. Nine aerial cableways provide access to the imposing Rigi massif, which extends from Küssnacht in the north to Brunnen in the south.
The local recreational area has a well signposted network of footpaths and offers activities for all ages. Various playgrounds and a rope park are on hand, as are a mini-golf course and an Alpine dairy, where you can watch the cheesemaker at work. To experience the sunrise and sunset on the Rigi, book a room on Rigi Kulm or Rigi Kaltbad.
Escape the low-lying cloud in winter and hit the slopes for some skiing or sledging. Or enjoy the views while snowshoeing on waymarked trails and stop off somewhere for a winter barbecue.
