Central Switzerland: scenic toboggan run

With this half a kilometre of sledging ensures lots of fun and pleasure, especially for families. Staffelhöhe is easily accessible with the Rigi cogwheel train from Vitznau. From Rigi Kaltbad, shuttle trains bring the sledgers back to the start. Sledging does not require any special technical skills 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.
