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.
