Rigi Burggeist - Obermatt - Breitaebnet - Obergschwend
Rosi's gnome trail from Rigi Burggeist to Obergschwend is really cool. You can combine the hike with a visit to the playground at mountain inn Rigi Scheidegg or Rigi Burggeist. Absolutely highlights for the little ones!
Every year Rosi Kuettel plans the delightful Gersau's gnome trail. A trip to the Rigi Scheidegg is especially worthwhile for families who enjoy hiking. The cable car Obergschwend - Rigi Burggeist takes you to the starting point of the hike. The children's playgrounds at the mountain inns Rigi Scheidegg and Rigi Burggeist are a must.

From Goldau to Kraebel valley station by car and change to cable car Kraebel - Rigi Scheidegg. You can arrive there also via Gersau, where you can change to the cable car Obergschwend - Rigi Burggeist.
There are plenty parking spaces avaliable at valley stations. Fees apply.
However, we recommend you to arrive by public transportations instead of cars: lean back, be stress-free and do something good for the environment.
