Rigi is one of the mountains that shows up in many tourist guides. The reason is quite obvious - it is easily accessible also for those who don't want to hike and it offers wonderful views. I hadn't been there yet, so it was time to go and check it out.

Again, this section you actually don't have to walk - the railway continues to almost to the top. Once you reach to the upper railway stations, you have 2 choices - shorter and steeper route or longer and more gradual route.

In short I would say that Rigi is definitely worth going and I recommend doing at least some parts on foot instead of taking the train. Otherwise you will miss a lot.
