What will I see?
A breathtaking panoramic view across the Alps, of 13 lakes and over the entire Swiss Mittelland through to Germany and France can be enjoyed from the summit of the Rigi.
The two cog railways from Vitznau (Europe’s first cog railway back in 1871) and Goldau, together with the panorama cable car from Weggis, make the journey up the mountain alone a truly unforgettable experience.
1 or 2 different lenses are usually enough during a shoot as there are many variations with angles, light, exposure time and of course the different locations and subjects. The list below gives you some ideas so that you can set your personal preferences
General Lenses: 24-70, 24-105 for a wide range of photo types and panoramas
Wide angle Lenses: 11-24, 16-35 for great wide angle shots
Telephoto Lenses: 28-300, 100-400 for details in subjects
Special Lenses: If you own a Macro lense or a Tilt-Shift lens - there will be plenty of opportunities to use them
Tripod: For morning, evening and long exposure shots during daylight. A tripod will greatly enhance your photographic experience
Filters: Polarizer, ND-Filters in different grades 3, 6, or 10 stops or variable ones for perfect long exposure shots
Accessoires: Spare batteries and memory cards. Camera and Lens cleaning set. Raincover for your gear
Temperature can vary greatly during the day. So we recommend you dress in layers and don't forget a rain jacket and an umbrella
Sun protection is essential. A hut and sun creme is recommended
