The first section offers a fantastic view of Lake Lucerne and the snow-capped Alps on the southern horizon.

Are you a relish walker? Then you should not miss this tour. This wide hiking trail runs along the route of the former Rigi-Scheidegg railway. From the restaurant Bärenstube First it leads through a enlightened mountain forest with a view of the both sides of Mt.Mythen that majestically tower over the Schwyz basin.

Hints

You can find the up-to-date operating status of the railways and hiking trails here.

In order to let our next generation also enjoy the Queen of the Mountains, may we ask you to dispose of the waste at Rigi Stations. Thank you.

 

Author’s recommendation

I recommend to induldge yourself for a moment in the hearty Restaurant Chalet Schild.
