Rigi Kulm HB/SZ-021

Rigi is a peak in the Region central Switzerland and very well known by everybody and crowded on Sunday. There are three ways to get to the top. Either from Arth-Goldau, Weggis and Vitznau. The latter usually reached preferable by steamboat on the Lake of Lucerne.

There are two Summits within this Region, Rigi Kulm and Dosse. The outlook from this place is realy impressive.

The Swiss Verkehrshaus Lucerne, is a museum, that shows you all kind of transportation, new or old transportation, like train, plane, vessel etc. They have a Amateur Radio Station located there. They operate with a special call sign “HB9O“. My first QSO with them. Everyone can go there an try out their CV skills.

Later we walked back to Rigi Kaltbad, then back to Lucerne by steamboat and a galss of white wine. perfect conclusion of this activation.
