Kräbel – Dächli – Schwändi – Trib – First – Rotstock – Stationenweg – Rigi Staffelhöhe
A challenging trail for experienced hikers. This tough climb is rewarded with spectacular panoramic views.
Back in the 17th century, this route was used by pilgrims and the first natural scientists who visited Mt. Rigi. From the Arth-Rigi railway station in Kräbel, it winds its way through romantic, wild forests which, according to the myth, were once home to the devil. The trail leads to Dächli, where the legendary Dächli innkeeper welcomed the very first visitors to Mt. Rigi around 400 years ago. The traditional Alp huts of Schwändi and Trib provide an insight into the crafts and trades of this mountain region with their selection of natural products. The trail is topped off by a climb to the peak of the unmistakeable Rotstock, where your hard work will be rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view.
