Weggis lies 30 kilometers east of Lucerne, on Mount Rigi. It offers mild climate as the one in Italy and there are many maintained gardens through which you can take a walk. Vitznau and Gersau are resorts similar to Weggis in climate and they are very close to it – an hour on foot or 5 minutes by car. The walks along the lakeshore are blissful and tranquil. A famous visitor of the resort is Mark Twain in 1897.

Weggis Tourist Attractions, Activities and Holidays

Weggis is preferred by many people. It can be reached by a steamer from Lucerne and by train via the international St. Gotthard railway line (Weggis is not part of the main line and does not have a train station).
From spring to autumn you can make numerous excursions in the area. There is a cableway which can take you to Rigi-Kaltbad (1 427 meters elevation) – a health resort up in the mountain. You can take walks not only along the quays, but also on the slopes of Rigi, most of which are planted with vines. There is also mountain transport, connecting Weggis with the Rigi Railways.
