Vitznau

Park Hotel Vitznau

The Vitznau lifestyle is shaped by its stunning location between Lake Lucerne and Mount Rigi. Protected by Mount Rigi, this village has a mild climate that allows palm trees and grapes to flourish. This holiday destination is a popular starting point for trips around Lake Lucerne and up the famous Mount Rigi. 

For centuries, Vitznau was a sleepy fishing village. But then it entered the technological history books on 21 May 1871, when Europe’s first-ever mountain train departed Vitznau and made its way up the steep slopes of Mount Rigi.
