Rigi Railways (German: Rigi Bahnen) is a group of railways on the mountain Rigi, located between two of the arms of Lake Lucerne, in Switzerland

They include two standard gauge rack railways, the Vitznau–Rigi Bahn (VRB) and the Arth–Rigi Bahn (ARB), along with the Luftseilbahn Weggis–Rigi Kaltbad (LWRK) cable car and six smaller cable cars: Luftseilbahn Kräbel–Rigi Scheidegg (LKR), Luftseilbahn Obergschwend–Rigi Burggeist (LORB), Luftseilbahn Küssnacht–Seebodenalp (LKüS), Luftseilbahn Vitznau–Hinterbergen (LVH), Luftseilbahn Vitznau–Wissifluh (LVW), and Luftseilbahn Brunnen–Urmiberg (LBU).

Reaching a height of 1752 metres (5748 ft) above sea level, the Rigi Railways are the highest standard gauge railway in Europe. They are also the highest railway in both cantons of Lucerne and Schwyz

The Vitznau–Rigi Bahn is also notable as the first mountain rack railway in Europe, and even the second in the world, after the Mount Washington Cog Railway in the United States
