Description

The relatively steep route from Seebodenalp to Rigi Staffel was already taken by Queen Victoria back in 1868 - but admittedly on horseback. However, Rigi hikers are richly rewarded for their efforts with enchanting views from Rigi Staffel. Europe's first rack railroad takes you back down to the valley. The ticket includes the following rides:

  • from Küssnacht am Rigi to Seebodenalp by cable car

  • from Rigi Staffel to Weggis / Vitznau by cogwheel train and cable car

The hike is from Seebodenalp to Rigi Staffel or vice versa.

From Vitznau or Weggis, a bus runs every half hour back to Küssnacht to the Seebodenalp cable car station or vice versa.

Here you find an overview map of Mt. Rigi. Here you find the discounts.

At the stations of the Rigi Railways, you will find parking spaces subject to a parking fee. However, we recommend public transport instead of cars: lean back, enjoy and do something good for the environment.
