After arriving in Zurich we are driving to Kuessnacht am Rigi near Luzern. We want to wake up for our first full day in Switzerland and go up to the Riggi Kulm, before spending the afternoon on a scenic drive to our ultimate destination in the Berner Oberland. Is there a “best way” to the top of the Rigi? It looks on a map like you can drive part of the way from Kuessnacht but I’m not sure if the map is accurate or how close to the top that actually gets you, or if you can take a tram or something from that road. Weggis cable car? Or train from Vitznau or train from Arth Goldau? Whichever way we go up we’ll need to go back down the same way as we’ll have parked our rental vehicle and so we will need to start and stop at the same place. Does anyone have a favorite way up or a favorite way down? Is there a good easy family hike at the top that wouldn’t take up too much of our day (we’ll reserve our longer hikes for later in the week in the Grindelwald/Lauterbrunnen area).
