Hint

Intro

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.

Description

The high alpine route begins quite flat, as it leaves Rigi- Kaltbad in direction of Rigi-Scheidegg. Be sure to take a look at Lake Luzern deep below. At the Hinter Dossen turn left, always hiking towards Rigi-Scheidegg. This area is quite busy if the weather is good. From here on, follow the directional signs indicating Brunnen/ Urmiberg. At the "Gätterli" the trail forks off to the Urmiberg cable-car, which is built right into the cliff. Once more, one gets a great view of Lake Uri and the Uri Alps before the small aerial cable-car hits Brunnen on the shores of Lake Luzern.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
