Know More about this tour

Day 1: Zurich Weggis Mt Rigi (D)
Meet your guide in central Zurich and begin your journey to Mt Rigi with a scenic coach drive through the beautiful countryside and along the Lake of the Four Cantons (the official name of Lake Lucerne) to Weggis! Here, your guide will leave you to board the aerial cable car independently for the ride up to Rigi-Kaltbad (youll receive all tickets, instructions and documents needed for the rest of the day). Get off the cable car at Rigi-Kaltbad and switch to Europes first cogwheel railway to complete the trip up to Rigi-Kulm, at an elevation of 6,000 feet (1,800 meters).

When you arrive at the top, be wowed by the spectacular views over the Alps and several Swiss mountain lakes. The views are simply incredible, and you'll have approximately three to four hours of free time here to soak it all in. During your free time, go for a hike on one of the well-maintained trails or rent a sled (own expense) for a little wintertime fun. Have lunch (own expense) at the Rigi-Kulm restaurant, or simply relax, enjoying the majestic alpine atmosphere and filling up your camera with one great shot after another.

In the afternoon, take the cogwheel train back down to Rigi-Kaltbad to check in to your hotel the three-star Hotel Rigi Kaltbad and take advantage of your included access to the Rigi Kaltbad Mineral Baths & Spa.

Round off your day at the hotels SunSet restaurant, where youll enjoy your four-course a la carte dinner of seasonal, regional specialties before retiring to your tastefully furnished hotel room.

When you reach Lucerne, you have free time to explore on your own and have lunch (own expense). See the citys top sights like Chapel Bridge, Old town, the Town hall and the Jesuit Church. Maybe visit the Swiss Museum of Transport (one of the biggest museums in Switzerland) or the Rosengart Museum, home to works by Picasso and Paul Klee (any entrance fees at own expense).

At a pre-arranged time, meet your guide and board the coach for the ride back to Zurich.
