:: Part 3 - Day Two / 25 June 2010 – Rigi, Lucerne and St Gallen ::
Sidetrack – The train stopped at Zug. Based on my checks
On SBB I was supposed to cross over to platform 3 at Zug an then
Take the next train to Goldau. However, I was momentarily
Stunned then the train on platform 3 seemed to be bound for
Somewhere else – I did what was the best thing to do for a
Moment like this – I asked a kind gentleman for assistance.
He confirmed that I was on the right train after all. Relief!
1005am – I’m past the first stop on the cogwheel train
Up Mount Rigi. It is actually a rather steep climb.
1055am – Rigi is fantastic! I arrived a Rigi Klum and
Then quickly climbed to the summit, which offered a
Fantastic view all around. I could also see Lake Lucerne.
At 1800metres above sea level, I had to catch my breath
As I chose the steeper option of the climb.
While Rigi offers an inviting opportunity for the first-time visitor
To stay and linger for a bit, I hurried back to the station in order to
Descend via the Red cogwheel towards Vitznam.
