Mt. Rigi - Private Day Trip from Lucerne (Winter)


Experience Lucerne’s home mountain peak with you English speaking guide and local expert who will tell you everything about Lucerne, its culture, its heritage and its people.

Go on adventure to Mt Rigi, also known as the “Queen of the Mountains”, and savor its 360-degree views of the surrounding Alps. This is the mountain peak where Alpine tourism began over 200 years ago, and before that, in the Middle Ages it was considered as the Center of the World.
Enjoy impressive 360-degree views over the Alps stretching way out into the distance. On a clear day you can even see as far as France to the West and the Black Forest in Germany to the North.

Take a gentle 30 min walk down to a 7th generation family-owned alpine dairy and artisan cheese-maker and see just how much physical labor is involved in making a wheel of cheese.
Continue to hike on for about an hour along a mountain trail, over alpine meadows and along a ridge path with spectacular views over the lakes and far into the distance. If the wind is blowing in the right direction, you may be able to watch paragliders launch themselves off the mountain.

Reaching Rigi-Kaltbad, warm yourself up by spending time in the mineral spring baths -an indoor/outdoor pool of spring water heated to 35C/95F. This very modern facility continues a 600-year old tradition of health seekers from far and wide coming to the healing waters to be healed of their ailments.
