Romiti – Chuenzingel – Grathöchi

The signposted snowshoe trail leads beginners and experienced hikers through the alpine snowy landscape. From the starting point at Romiti station, the beautiful trail leads to Grathöchi.

From there you can reach Rigi Staffelhöhe railway station in just a few minutes, or if you still have some reserves, you can hike on to Staffel station.

Author’s recommendation

The Kräuterhotel Edelweiss on Rigi Staffelhöhe is particularly worth a stop, as it offers many homemade specialities with local Rigi products.
