The highland tour from Kaltbad via the Scheidegg to Urmiberg can only be described as absolute top! Unique views, in part with up to four lakes viewed at the same time, and a mountain panorama extending from Säntis as far as the Bernese Alps. Cosy mountain catering spots add tasteful pleasures to healthy adventure along the way.
Mt.Rigi offers a cornucopia of hikes but the hike from Rigi- Kaltbad to the Urmiberg is one of the prettiest and most popular ones. One can glean up to four lakes simultaneously, as well as a splendid alpine panorama. Along the way, cozy mountain inns offer snacks and meals.
As Switzerland's most visited mountain, Mt. Rigi has gained international fame. This became possible only after the mountain world was opened up by mountain trains. The Vitznau-Rigi-Bahn, a railroad running between Vitznau and Kaltbad, was opened on May 21, 1871. An extension to Mt. Kulm was presented to the public on June 27, 1873.
