The panoramic family destination – high above Lake Lauerz.
No matter whether it’s summer or winter, if you’re after a truly spectacular view you can’t do much better than Rigi Scheidegg. The Goldau Kräbel-Rigi Scheidegg aerial cable car transports visitors to 1,665 metres above sea level in just six minutes. This popular destination in Central Switzerland is easy to reach from all parts of Switzerland. And thanks to the Rigi Bahnen mountain railways connection, Scheidegg’s circular walks with panoramic 360° views are popular among young and old.
