Magnificent open space. Following advice from hotel we did the reverse trip and found far fewer people at every point. Good walks, great views across the lake and beyond. Eateries offered a decent selection of food and drink.

Rigi is really one of the most famous mountain in Switzerland. There are higher mountains but the view from this mountain is spectacular. The mountain is located between the alps and the flat part in the east. So you see two important aspects of Switzerland. Also you have a nice

Response from Rigibahnen, Director of Sales at Mt. Rigi Railways Day Pass
Responded 15 May 2020
Hello--most of the trains heading from Zurich south towards Italy will stop at Arth-Goldau. Here, you can switch onto the narrow-gauge railway belonging to the RIGI BAHNEN that will take you up to Rigi Staffel & Kulm. Please keep in mind that any travel from Zürich to Arth-Goldau needs to be paid for separately and is not including in this particular product`s price. We look forward to hopefully seeing you at the Queen of the Mountains very soon. Kind Regards, Mount Rigi Guest Services Department

Dear kkleinrn, wow, it seems you made the best out of your visit. Mount Rigi is famous for being above fog level and I am happy you took the chance to hike down and take a little time to spot the lovely Swiss Chalets in Rigi Kaltbad. Thank you for choosing Mount Rigi as your favorite activity, we are convinced that the Queen of the Mountains is always worth a visit with its special charm. All the best from Vitznau, Ragna, Customer Service
