Climb up to Rigi, the Queen of the Mountains, with Europe’s oldest mountain railways

Europe’s oldest mountain railways were built in 1870 on mount Rigi. With its red wagons, Rigi Railways bring you up to 1,798 m.s.l. from Viznau, at the shores of Lake Lucerne. The gauge rack railway reaches the highest peak, Rigi Kulm, through galleries, bridges and awesome scenarios.
