Rigi, an isolated peak in the canton of Schwyz, is between the Lakes Zug and Lucerne, and rises to a height of 5,900 feet. It commands fine views, and is a hackneyed resort of tourists, who can ascend by either of two railways to the hotels at the summit. These railways are worked by means of a toothed wheel and rail.
