Rigi – Queen of the Mountains, Switzerland

A short trip by train from Zurich and we are ready to board the first cogwheel railway in Europe to head up the Rigi mountain. Beautifully nested between Lake Lucerne on the one side and Lake Zug on the other, it offers majestic moments and outstanding panorama views into the alps. The hiking trails on the Rigi are easy, well sign-posted & well maintained. An enjoyable trip to have a break from busy Zurich-city-life.

My friend Sharon visited from London and wanted to go into the mountains – for that Rigi is the perfect choice – and we also had the pinch of luck to be just back for lunch at the restaurant near the train station when it started to rain. So, we made best use of our time and the sun up there.
