trip to Mt Rigi

We are two friends planning to go to Mt Rigi tomorrow(23rd Dec). Starts in Lausanne at 07:00 AM and would end in Lausanne at probably around 23:00 hrs.
The weather forecast is for bright sunny weather so the view should be good. No hiking or anything of that sort, just a 'touristy' visit.
Anyone willing to join is welcome.

Re: trip to Mt Rigi

We were planning on Rigi tomorrow and have postponed until Saturday because the forecast we looked at was not so good (snow) and also because the sledging and skiing opens on Saturday.

Would heartily recommend Hotel Edelweiss for a good lunch at Staffelhohe station. Beautiful views and great food.

Re: trip to Mt Rigi

The trip was excellent.
The view from the top of the mountain, with only snow around, clouds in-front of you and mountain peaks beyond them. Amazing !!
It was like the view which you seen from outside the window of an airplane while passing over the Alps. But in this case, it was like someone put you in one of those mountains and you can stay there soaking in the beauty around.
Would recommend people to go there..
Also, the trip from Lucerne involves a boat ride and a mountain train and both of them are included in the 'day pass' area so you needn't pay anything extra. Total value for money !
