Light enjoyment hike with gigantic panoramic views.
Take the cog railway from Goldau or Vitznau up to Rigi Kulm. Behind the mountain chapel, a wide hiking trail leads down to the Rigi Staffel station. This effortless high-altitude hike offers you magnificent views over the Swiss midlands to the Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains. Be enchanted by spectacular sweeping views of the Vierwaldstättersee and Zugersee lakes. Awaiting you is a high level of enjoyment with minimal effort.
The hike can also be done in the opposite direction.
The current operating status of the railways and hiking trails can be found here. So that future generations can also enjoy the Queen of the Mountains, we ask you to dispose of your waste at the stations or take it home with you. Thank you.
I like to enjoy the delicious regional specialities at the Lok 7 restaurant in Rigi Staffel.
Vitznau: A4 exit Küssnacht am Rigi, follow signs to Weggis or Vitznau.
Goldau: A4 exit Goldau, follow signs to car park A4 of the Rigi Bahnen.
Metered parking is available at the Rigi Bahnen stations (Goldau A4, Kräbel & Vitznau).
However, we recommend public transport instead of a car: sit back, enjoy and do something good for the environment to boot.
