Rigi Kaltbad – First – Unterstetten – Hinder Dossen – Rigi Scheidegg
The panoramic hike from Rigi Kaltbad to Rigi Scheidegg is just like a winter dream. In the whole area you will find inviting restaurants with panoramic terraces or uncomplicated picknick places with prefilled firewood. Even in winter!
Enjoy the unique 360° panoramic view on the 7 km long panorama hiking trail. This route is ideal for pleasure hikers.
Many interesting witness of the former Rigi-Scheidegg Railway can be discovered along this way. The route takes you over the old railway bridge, through a tunnel, past a disused passenger couch and a water filling station for the steam locomotives. The view of the Alps and the Schwyz basin is just magnificent. From Rigi Scheidegg you can take the cable car back to Goldau via Kräbel.
This hike can also be taken in the opposite direction.
You can find the up-to-date operating status of the railways and hiking trails here.
In order to let our next generation also enjoy the Queen of the Mountains, may we ask you to dispose of the waste at Rigi Stations. Thank you.

Please always follow the marked winter hiking trails.
High profile winter equipment are needed: hiking boots, rain jacket, drink, food and possibly walking sticks.
At the end of the hike I recommend to take refreshment in the mountain inn Rigi Scheidegg with their local products.
