Full description
Discover Rigi, the Queen of the Mountains, from its most beautiful side on a half or full-day tour. Begin with a boat tour on Lake Lucerne to Vitznau. Modern motor boats and nostalgic steamboats (in the summer) bring you over the incredible, fjord-like water to Vitznau.

From Vitznau, head to the venerable old Rigi Train on the queen of the mountains. A fantastic view of the Swiss Plateau, the Black Forest, the Vosges Mountains, and the Alps awaits from Rigi Kulm. Descend with the rack railway to Rigi Kaltbad and from there take the cable car to Weggis. Finally, return by boat to Lucerne.
