Where you’ll be

Vitznau, Luzern, Switzerland

The inhabitants of Mittlerschwanden are happy about your visit and are always available for a chat. The farmer next door is happy to provide you with fresh eggs, milk and meat every day.

The accommodation is located only 5 minutes from Vitznau with the Rigibahn and 30 minutes on foot. Vitznau offers cafés, restaurants, a supermarket as well as various cultural activities and excellent bathing spots. Steamships leave daily for Lucerne or Brunnen. The top of the Rigi is only 25 minutes away by train and offers many wellness and family offers as well as spectacular hiking trails and in winter skiing and sledding.

Everyone knows: The Rigi is more than just a mountain - it is the "Queen of the mountains" and lets the world around it shine in a new light every morning. The history of the Rigi is unique. It was the fashion mountain of the 19th century, the darling of kings and poet princes. As early as 1816, the first guesthouse was opened on the Rigi-Kulm, the highest peak of the mountain. After the construction of Europe's first mountain railroad in 1871, it was increasingly frequented by wealthy tourists.

The " Fog Days " are still a wonderful event on the Rigi and attract tourists from all over the world to the heart of Switzerland. Especially in winter, when the valley is under thick fog and the Rigi offers a view with bright sunshine, people are drawn high up to the summit. Enthusiasm reigns when it slowly gets brighter, the sun shines dimly through the fog and suddenly the whole Alpine panorama appears.
