This walk takes one up behind the village and offers spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountains as well as an impressive picture of the village below.

This interesting circular walk around the village passes traditional farmhouses, lush meadows and fields full of fruit trees whilst offering ever-changing views of Mt. Rigi, Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains. The All Saints Chapel in the Unterdorf is well worth a visit.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the boat station Weggis walk along the lake to the village square, passing the hotels Viktoria and Schweizerhof. After the next building a small path turns left. Follow that path, pass the Rigistrasse, keep going following a little stream until you reach Zingelistrasse. Here turn left. On a bench you can have a rest and enjoy the magnificent views. Continue the street to the next crossing and turn right. The street now leads to the rose farm turning left to the Remsistrasse, where you turn left again and will reach the roundabout. Pass the filling station to the right and turn into the Hügeristrasse. Keep going until you reach the crossing at the Hügerihof farm. There a path turns left, passing the Hotel Friedheim and back down to the lake. Walk along the lake back to the boat station.
