Welcome to Mt Rigi
Turner couldn’t quite make up his mind about how he preferred 1797m Rigi (www.rigi.ch; 13km east of Lucerne), so in 1842 the genius painted the mountain in three different lights to reflect its changing moods. On a clear day there are impressive views to a jagged spine of peaks including Mt Titlis and the Jungfrau giants. To the north and west, you overlook Arth-Goldau and Zugersee, which curves around until it almost joins Küssnacht and an arm of Lake Lucerne. Sunrises and sunsets viewed from Rigi's summit are the stuff of bucket lists.
