Rigi Scheidegg - Hinter Dossen - Unterstetten - First - Rigi Kaltbad          

This leisure hiking trail leads you through well-designed paths along the lake route to Rigi Kaltbad. The magnificent panorama of the Kreuztrichter of Lake Lucerne and the Bernese Alps will accompany you all the way long.

From Rigi Scheidegg you will walk leisurely along the panorama trail to Hinter Dossen. At Unterstetten, the well-conducted mountain path branches off again to the Rigi Panoramaweg. Following this you will hike around the Würzenstock. The view wanders to the top of the Rigi and over the Mt.Mythen. After Würzenstock you have two choices: either you follow the impressive rock path to Rigi Kaltbad-First or you stay on the equally beautiful panorama path. In Rigi Kaltbad, the Mineralbad & Spa rewards you to relax your tired hiking muscles in the warm water.

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 highly recommend a relaxing bath in the Mineralbad & Spa Rigi Kaltbad at the end of the hike.
