Begin the hike at Rigi-Kaltbad and hike West towards Chänzeli. From here, you will have a fantastic view onto Lake Luzern and the city of Luzern, framed by Mt. Pilatus. Follow the ridge to the peak of the mountain, also known as Rigi-Kulm. From Rigi-Staffel onwards, the route is parallel to the train tracks of the two cogwheel trains that ascend from Vitznau respectively Goldau. Returning to Rigi- Kaltbad from the top is on the same trail as the way up.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
