A fascinating and easy hike for pleasure hikers and families with children. The route follows the former route of the Rigi Scheidegg - Kaltbad railroad (1874 - 1931). On the way, many traces of the former railroad can be discovered, as the route leads over old bridges and through tunnels with a constant view of the Alps and the Schwyz valley basin.

 

The hike can also be done in the opposite direction.

Author’s recommendation

I can most warmly recommend a relaxing bath in the Rigi Kaltbad Mineral Bath & Spa at the end of the hike.
