Weggis tourist information & hotel reservations.
We warmly welcome you to visit Weggis and wish you a wonderful vacation.
Weggis lies 30 kilometers east of Lucerne, on Mount Rigi. It offers mild climate as the one in Italy and there are many maintained gardens through which you can take a walk. Vitznau and Gersau are resorts similar to Weggis in climate and they are very close to it – an hour on foot or 5 minutes by car. The walks along the lakeshore are blissful and tranquil. A famous visitor of the resort is Mark Twain in 1897.
Weggis is preferred by many people. It can be reached by a steamer from Lucerne and by train via the international St. Gotthard railway line (Weggis is not part of the main line and does not have a train station).
There are daily steamers from Lucerne to Weggis and the trip lasts about 45 minutes. From the lake during the summer there is bus transportation to the upper parts of the town.
By car from Lucerne you should head east on Route 2, along the shores of Lake Lucerne and then continue south on Route 2b at the signpost for Weggis.
