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.

In order to let our next generation also could enjoy the beauty of the Rigi, we would like to ask you to dispose of your own waste in the waste bins which are located at all of the stations of RIGI BAHNEN AG. Thank you.
I recommend you to make a short stop at the Arche on Rigi Scheidegg and enjoy the breath-taking 360-degree view.
