Central Switzerland: scenic toboggan run

Stimulate is guaranteed on this toboggan run. The trail from Rigi Kulm via Schwändi begins at the very end of the Rigi train tracks. It leads from Rigi Kulm and past the Chäserenholz alpine cheese farm to Schwändi then down to Rigi Klösterli. From Klösterli, sports shuttle trains take the tobogganers back to the start point at Rigi Kulm. Sledging does not require any special technical skills and can be practised by anyone.

Author’s recommendation

A break at the alpine cheese farm Chäserenholz with a small cheese tasting is always worthwhile.
