Mt. Rigi "Queen of the Mountains" Excursion. We took a tour beginning at Lucerne, with a boat ride across the lake to Vitznau. At Vitznau we took the Rigibahn to the top at Rigi Kulm. We spent a lot of time wandering around near the top of Rigi with amazing 360-degree views. We enjoyed a picnic lunch we brought with us, then walked partway down the trail to a cafe for coffee and ice cream. There we boarded the Rigibahn to get back to Vitznau and the boat for the return trip to Lucerne.

We will walk down from the top of Rigi to here for coffee and ice cream :)

At the top of Rigi it feels like being in an airplane

The famous "No. 7" brought into service for the 150th anniversary of the Rigibahn
