About this poster

A lovely original poster by Anton Reckziegel from the beginnings of winter tourism around 1900. This beautiful lithograph shows the Rigi cog railway in the midst of a picturesque winter landscape with the Rotstock, Rigi-First and Rigi-Kulm peaks in the background. The winter timetable for the Rigibahn, which includes some amusing comments, is of particular historical interest. This perfect lithograph is an elegant document from the golden age of 20th century Swiss poster art.
