Seebodenalp - Alp Raeb - Seebodenalp 

To escape from the foggy weather in the valley, a trip to Seebodenalp is definitly worth a visit. True to the motto "Grey below - Blue above"

These wonderful winter hiking trails at the foot of the Rigi Kulm invite you to take a gateaway from the stress and hectic pace of one's daily life. Cosy mountain inns adorn the beautifully signposted route. The Raebalp alpine restaurant, the Holderenhuette and the Grodstuebli will indulge you with local specialities and guarantee cosy places to stop for some refreshments. The starting and ending  points both are the mountain cable car station of the Küssnacht-Seebodenalp. A large car park is located just directly next to the mountain station.

This easy winter hiking trail is suitable for both young and old and offers unique wide views overlooking the sea of fog.

For your information 

You can find the current operating status of the railways and hiking trails here.

In order to let our next generation also be inspired from the Queen of the Mountains, may we ask you to dispose of your own waste at Rigi Stations. Thank you.

Author’s recommendation

I recommend you after this wonderful round tour, order a refreshing local Rigi beer in Hotel Seebodenalp.
