Central Switzerland: scenic theme trail

At 1656 metres above sea level, information boards describe native animals. Take your family in search of traces and with a little luck and patience you might even find a fox, badger or squirrel. More common are the mountain chamois, which occasionally dare to go down to the lake shore. The fantastic panorama of the Alps contributes to making your visit to the Rigi unforgettable.

For your information

In order to let our next generation also could enjoy the beauty of the Rigi, we would like to ask you to dispose of your own waste in the waste bins which are located at all of the stations of RIGI BAHNEN AG. Thank you.
