At the forefront of the Alps, Mt. Rigi is known as the “Queen of the Mountain” and is a famous observatory in central Switzerland. Since ancient times, it has been a famous place to watch the sunrise and sunset. From the observation deck on the top of the mountain, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Alps and extend to the Black Forest in Germany and the plains of France. In the early 19th century, cultural celebrities such as Weber, Mendelssohn, and Victor Hugo visited here. In 1864, Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom also visited the Mt. Rigi.
