Tickets for and cost of Mt Rigi daytrip from Lucerne

We're wanting to go across the lake from Lucerne to Vitznau, get the red cogwheel train up to Mt Rigi, the blue cogwheel train down to Arth-Goldau and then back to Lucerne - possibly via a visit to Zug.

How and where do we buy tickets for each bit of this journey? As we go along or can we buy a pass that covers us for this trip similar to the Golden Roundtrip for Mt Pilatus?

Many thanks.

You may want to have a look at buying the Tell Pass www.sommer-tellpass.ch/en/travel-rates.html

If you buy them from Swiss Tourismn in London there is a two for one offer on at the moment.

Thanks, that does sound like a great deal, unfortunately it starts just after we leave Switzerland! We're there over the last weekend of August.

If you can't take advantage of the offer, buy you round trip ticket at the kiosk before you board the boat. Most transport options in Switzerland are co-ordinated and you can buy tickets for a trip that includes several forms of transport

It may be an advantage to be armed with the Swiss Half Fare ticket. This cost 110CHF valid for a month and is applied to all forms of transport. Just present it to the ticket office or you can buy half price tickets from the automatic ticket machines. You just present both to the ticket inspector on board, train, boat etc. www.swisstravelsystem.co.uk
