Full description

Start the day off with a train ride from the Lucerne train station to Goldau, where you will transfer to the Mt. Rigi cogwheel train, and then to the aerial tram, to reach the starting point of your hike at the 1,661-meter high Rigi Scheidegg.

The panoramic views and the symphony of cow bells in the summer months provide the perfect ambiance, and served as the inspiration from Mark Twain's 1880 book, “A Tramp Abroad." Midway through the hike, stop for lunch at a typical Alpine restaurant or bring your own to enjoy at a nearby meadow.

After lunch, continue hiking through undulating meadows to reach the modern facilities of the newly opened Mineralbad & Spa at Rigi Kaltbad, designed by internationally renowned architect, Mario Botta. Take the cogwheel train up to the top of Mount Rigi to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views over the lakes and mountains, and then descend by foot back to the Rigi Kaltbad. End the tour with a scenic 40-minute boat cruise across Lake Lucerne, returning to the Lucerne train station by 6:47 PM.
