Beckenried

Beckenreid – located between Flüelen and Lucerne – offers fine views of Lake Lucerne and of the Rigi, "Queen of the Mountains". The Rigi summit itself can be reached by cogwheel railway from Vitznau (built in 1871 and the first mountain railway in Europe), by cogwheel railway from Goldau or with the panorama aerial cableway from Weggis.
