First I would start with the beautiful flowers that one can see on this mountain .. honestly u hv to do some trekking on the way side of the railway track … but i was not in mood to do so .. hence was happy to see flowers on the mountain top …
from the top .. 1797 m Rigi Kulm .. u can get magnificent view of lake lucerne … and the wild flowers …
Now the options to travel to Mount Rigi Kulm.
Although there are multiple options for this I shall explain the one which I selected with boat ride, cogwheel railway and cable car 🙂
So Start from Lucerne boat station and catch boat for mount Rigi, which travels towards Vitznau.
Lady officer arresting the boat movement by throwing rope to the standing bars … reached Vitznau …
Get down at Vitznau, where u can catch a cogwheel railway to mount Rigi
Kulm, since they are connected in timing as soon as u get down
immediately move alongwith crowd. here u see that u get place on the left hand side window to get good views of lake and valley.
Now once u r done with ur lunch and ready to go down … catch the same RED cogwheel train and get down at Rigi Kaltbad, where u can move towards the cable car ..down to Weggis …
now when u get down to Weggis .. u hv to move down to the boat station to catch boat towards Lucerne ..
on the way down when u cross a bridge under the main road .. immediately after that u can see nice homes .. with beautiful flowers outside …we almost spent an hour looking around … here are few snaps …
and another one ,.,, mann ,, how can one build such beautiful house .. in such a location … i wish i could have one … at least as my holiday home .. may be next time i shall try for some B&B stay where i could stay at actual swiss house 🙂
So overall this trip was nice one for me …. there are many options to reach mount Rigi .. u can find one when u see the map and try another one if u hv time ….
hope this helps !
