Just below the aerial cable car station, the Rigiland adventure playground entices our youngest visitors to enjoy some fun and games. When they have finished romping around, they will be glad of a picnic at one of the spacious BBQ sites. A nice game of minigolf on the adjacent course will put everyone in a good mood.

Then you can walk to the Känzeli viewpoint for breathtaking views down on to Lake Lucerne. The level trail takes you through the fascinating Grandwald with its mysterious rock formations. No wonder that this is where legend has it that the shy Rigi Wildmannli used to live. You can still see them today, cheerful figures greeting you from beside the path. You can obtain a brochure containing magical stories about these quaint little chaps at the Tourist Office in Kaltbad.

For your information

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.
