A breathtaking panoramic view across the Alps, of 13 lakes and over the entire Swiss Mittelland through to Germany and France can be enjoyed from the summit of the Rigi.

The two cog railways from Vitznau (Europe’s first cog railway back in 1871) and Goldau, together with the panorama cable car from Weggis, make the journey up the mountain alone a truly unforgettable experience.

Winter
In winter, the view of the vast sea of fog becomes a unique experience. 35 km of groomed winter hiking trails, four toboggan runs and ski pistes offer everything for the perfect winter’s day. There are also three signposted snowshoe trails from Rigi Kulm. Other facilities include ski and snowboard courses, night skiing and tobogganing, guided snowshoe tours, the “Pinocchio” kids’ play areas on Rigi First, Rigi Staffel, Rigi Scheidegg, Rigi Burggeist and Seebodenalp as well as a natural ice rink. Winter on the Rigi – experience the magic of nature in its most romantic form.

Summer
Covering around 90 km2, this car-free holiday and recreation area with 120 km of well signposted hiking trails is perfect for walks and mountain hikes. The magnificent Alpine flora and unique views of the lakes and mountains will delight every hiker. Guests can watch incomparable sunrises on the Rigi and linger on the sun terraces of many hotels and restaurants. There are also rustic-style covered barbecue sites (“Gruebis”) for a cosy picnic from your rucksack.
