Rigi is a mountain in central Switzerland and part of the Alps. It's also known as the "Queen of the Mountains." The mountain is easily accessible by public transportation. It offers many winter and summer excursions such as skiing or sledding. Hiking there is also a favorite. It can be reached from Goldau and Vitznau by the Rigi-Bahnen, a rack railway, and from Weggis by cable car. The Rigi has been further made famous through paintings by JMW Turner, including "The Blue Rigi, Lake of Lucerne, Sunrise". Read more about Rigi Kulm on Wikipedia
