The Rigi mountain (1797 meters high) is one of the most famous view points of the entire alps. The field of view reaches from eastern Switzerland at the Austrian border over nearly the whole western alps to the Mont Blanc summit, which is visible on very clear days. The panorama is taken at the end of november over a sea of fog. I enjoyed an absolute lonesome evening on this summit, which is usually overcrowded by tourists from all over the world. No one has to be retouched from the image ;-). The Rigi summit can be comfortably reached from three sides by mountain railways or by cable car (www.rigi.ch). The railway from Vitznau at the Lake Lucerne is one of the oldest mountain railways of the world.
