Need advice on Mt. Rigi hike from Lucerne

Jump to last reply

I read a neat photo blog about a Rigi hike at http://www.fannetasticfood.com/2014/08/26/hiking-rigi-mountain-near-lucerne-switzerland/. I'm trying to understand what route they hiked. It seems to me they did the following:
1. Arrive in Vitznau
2. Take private gondola up called Luftseilbahn Vitznau - Hinterbergen
3. Walk from the top of that gondola to the top of Rigi in about 4 hours.
4. Take the tram back down the mountain to Vitznau

But as I'm looking at this route it seems to be a very steep hike from the top of that private gondola to the top of Rigi. I'm wondering if we did this if we'd not take the tram to the top and then walk down to the gondola.

If we wanted to spend 4 hours at most on a hike and want the most dramatic views...what would you recommend on the way to the top of Rigi?
