Central Switzerland: Toboggan run with spectacular view.

The 3.1 kilometre long trail leads from Rigi Kulm along the tracks of the Rigi Railways to Rigi Staffel. From Rigi Staffel on, the path becomes steep and the speed increases quickly. The trail then heads downhill to Rigi Klösterli, where you will be chauffeured by the Rigi shuttle train back to the start point. Sledging does not require any special technicalskills and can be practiced by anyone.

For your information

You can find the current operating status of the railways and hiking trails here..

In order to let our next generation could also 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 the stations of RIGI BAHNEN AG. Thank you.

Author’s recommendation

I highly recommend a short warm-up break at the Restaurant Bahnhöfli on Rigi Staffel.
