The gondola from Weggis to Rigi Kaltbad leave every 30 minutes: works since 1968.

In Arth/Goldau, take the cogwheel train to Rigi Kulm: operates since 1875. Count a 45 minute ride to get to the top.

The train going from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm became in 1871 the first European railway.

There are possibilities for walks for all types of walkers:experienced or not, slow or fast, Nordic walkers and even with wheelchairs or baby carriages.

The views from Kaltbad to Unterstetten and then to Klösterli are unforgettable. You will enjoy sights of the Lake of Lucerne with the island of Vitznau. It is better for children still staying in a carriage or for older children. Also you will find easy paths from Känzeli. You can choose paths going from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

    J’y suis allée une fois et j’en garde un souvenir merveilleux. C’est un endroit où la vue est inoubliable ! On peut s’asseoir le matin devant ce paysage et y être encore le soir à rêver….des bancs sur le chemin de promenade incitent à la pause…c’est magique !
