With the Kräbel-Rigi Scheidegg cable car you reach the starting point of the hike. With a view of Lake Lucerne and the Alps - even the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau greet you from afar - you hike along the ridge to the turnoff behind Dosse and then up to the Dosse. You will be rewarded with a phenomenal view for the somewhat steep ascent. Sticks are recommended for the equally steep descent towards Unterstetten. Via the lake path you will reach Hinter Dosse again, from where you can easily reach the Rigi Scheidegg on the route of the old Kaltbad-Scheidegg railway. 

Notes

The current operating status of the cable cars and hiking trails can be found here.

To ensure that future generations can also enjoy the Queen of the Mountains, we kindly ask you to dispose of your waste at the stations of the Rigi Cableways. Thank you.
