The Rigi massif is located at the northern shore of the lake of Lucerne. Other peaks of the Rigi massif are: Gersauerstock 1'451 m, Dossen 1'658 m, Rigi Rotstock 1'750 m and Rigi-Hochflue 1'698 m.  The top of Rigi-Kulm is connected by two rack railways from the villages Arth-Goldau and Vitznau, operated by the Rigi Bahnen.
The Vitznau-Rigi rack railway started operating in May 21, 1871. In June 4, 1875 the Arth-Rigi rack railway started as well allowing the access from the other side of the mountain. The Vitznau-Rigi rack railway was the first mountain rack railway in Europe and the second of the world. The very first is the rack railway on Mt. Washington, USA (Inauguration in July 3, 1869). The Rigi is also known as “the Queen of the Mountains”, for its breathaking panoramic view over the Swiss Alps.
