Küssnacht - Gesslerburg - Alpenhof - Holderen - Ruetlersplangg - Baenderen - Rigi Staffel
Seebodenalp is one of the most beautiful panoramic terraces in the foothills of the Swiss Alps.
The first section of the Schwyzer mountain path contains numerous stops worth to experience. Make your first stop at the Gesslerburg and embark on the historic castle tour. Afterwards, you will pass by typical Küssnacht farms before expedited climbing up to Seebodenalp. From Seebodenalp you can enjoy a fantastic view of Pilatus and the pre-Alpine landscape. The route continues leisurely to Alp Holderen and then through the secluded Rigi forest and Baenderen until Rigi-Staffel.
