    A must do!! Breathtaking, gorgeous views from the top of Mt. Rigi. Take a cable car up halfway and then a cute cogwheel train further. No words to describe the scenery. There is a restaurant near the top should you get hungry/thirsty. After, a boat to Lucerne to walk around and

    Trip was very well organized but we had plenty of free time to explore both venues. Ski lift was great as many people had never been on one. The Cog Wheel Train was definitely a new experience.
