Rigi – queen of the mountains. Not because of its height, but because of its beauty. The summit Rigi Kulm is located at 1797m in the canton of Schwyz. The peak is easy to reach and offers a great panoramic view, which is why it is very popular among tourists and locals. Mount Rigi is located between Lake Zug and Lake Vierstädterwald, which gives you a beautiful view of both lakes, in case the weather cooperates. The rack railroad runs from Goldau to the top, covering over 1000 meters in altitude. The comfortable ride to the top takes about 45min.

From Rigi Kulm station it is only a few hundred meters to the highest point next to the antenna. You can choose between a steeper or easier path for the last meters. From the Rigi Kulm you can also start various hikes. Either as a circular hike or get back on the train at another station. In winter there is also a marked circular trail for snowshoeing. Also a sledge run starts almost directly at the mountain station. Skiing is also possible on the Rigi. However, the ski lifts are not at the summit, but one station before. I would recommend to take a look on the website to find all possibilities for winter and summer. https://www.rigi.ch/en/experience/explore-the-mountain/rigi-kulm

It’s also worth taking a look at the discounts. As of 2021, the Rigi cable cars are included in the GA travelcard and also with the Swiss Travel Pass.

You are more in the mood for relaxation. Then maybe the mineral bath and spa Rigi Kaltbad is the right thing for you. Relax in the mountains and enjoy a beautiful mountain panorama. You can find more information here:  https://www.aqua-spa-resorts.ch/en/mineralbad-spa-rigi-kaltbad

And did you know there is partnership between Rigi and Mount Emei in China? You can see a stone-symbol for that on the top.
