The Rigi (or Mount Rigi; also known as Queen of the Mountains) is a mountain massif of the Alps, located in Central Switzerland. The whole massif is almost entirely surrounded by the water of three different bodies of water: Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz. The range is in the Schwyzer Alps, and is split between the cantons of Schwyz and Lucerne, although the main summit, named Rigi Kulm, at 1,798 meters above sea level, lies within the canton of Schwyz. The Rigi Kulm Hotel, established in 1816, is located on the summit.
The Rigi Kulm and other areas, such as the resort of Rigi Kaltbad, are served by Europe's oldest mountain railways, the Rigi Railways. The whole area offers many activities such as skiing or sledging in the winter, and hiking in the summer.

Nice place to visit. It was covered with snow when I visited. While going, took ropeway and while returning, I took train...Nice view of snow covered mountains on one side and the view of lake on other side...

Offers beautiful mountain and lake views, you either hike or take cable train. We paid 42 chf for one return ticket since it was after 5 pm. There is not much to do up if it is summer, other than hiking.

beautiful, peaceful, I couldn’t believe that I am being there at this moment because the scenery is not like reality.

I don't rate this mountain 2 stars because it was bad, I rate it 2 stars because Mt. Pilatus is a much better place to spend your day and explore. Rigi is more difficult to access than Pilatus and the views/alpine experience are not nearly as exhilarating. Choose Pilatus over Rigi if you can only do one of the two.
