I will be spending 4 nights in Lucerne in the beginning of June. Most of the travel blogs speak of going up to Mt Titlis or Pilatus. Since Mt Rigi is included in my Swiss Travel Ticket, I was thinking of going first to Mt Rigi if the weather is clear. This might mean missing the other 2 if the weather is not clear. Is this a mistake? What is the real difference in each of the mountain tops? In other words, should I change my priorities and possibly give up Mt Rgi which is free?

Besides the views, we would like to hike. Does this make a difference?

Hi Silvia,

Did you already study the below pages? You'll find lots of details and pictures there to compare your options.

They're all good; just different!

Hi Sylvia -

<<"Besides the views, we would like to hike. Does this make a difference?">>

I have set this map to show "die Wanderwge" the marked hiking trails.

Look carefully at altitudes.

That may help you with decisions about the mountains. There are more hikes of varying difficulty on the Rigi than on the other two mountains.

Yellow can be done in sneakers. Red need boots and hiking staffs. Blue are technical.
