Obergschwend - Feissenboden - Nüden - Obnüden - Höcheli - Rigi Burggeist

On quiet soles you can make your first tracks in the snow on this panoramic tour. Surrounded by the silence of nature and the magnificent view of the Bernese Alps and Lake Lucerne, you will enjoy the uniqueness of the Gersau Alps. Meanwhile, the Rigi Hochflue towers majestically above you. For the descent, you can comfortably use the cable car from Rigi Burggeist to Obergschwend.
