Berggasthaus Rigi-Burggeist

The cosy mountain guesthouse with served and wind-protected panorama terrace above Gersau is situated in a unique mountain landscape with views far over Lake Lucerne and up to the Säntis.
A rich and varied cuisine sourced from mainly regional products satisfies the tastes of all guests of all ages.
Be it for a snack or a proper menu, be it an individual guest or a whole group, everybody is welcome at the Rigi Burggeist mountain inn. On the spacious, sunlit terrace, visitors never tire of absorbing the panoramic views.

The children, meanwhile, are busy exploring the nearby playground. In winter, a children’s ski lift operates right next to the inn. From Rigi Burggeist, the Panorama Trail leads directly to Rigi Kaltbad.

The mountain inn offers more than great food and gorgeous views, it also has accommodation. Individuals or groups, families or businesses can choose from 27 beds for a comfortable night’s sleep.

For those staying overnight, and for other guests upon reservation, we are happy to keep the restaurant open longer in the evening.

So day guests can enjoy a delicious dinner before the Rigi Burggeist cable car, accessible from the mountain inn, takes them safely back to Obergschwend.
