Seebodenalp - Alp Räb - Seebodenalp 

To escape from the foggy weather in the valley, a trip to Seebodenalp is recommended. True to the motto below grey - above blue. 




These wonderful winter hiking trails at the foot of the Rigi Kulm invite you to take a gateaway from the stress and hectic pace of daily life. Cosy mountain inns adorn the beautifully signposted route. The Räbalp alpine restaurant, the Holderenhütte and the Grodstübli will indulge you with local specialities and guarantee cosy places to stop for refreshments. The starting and ending  points are the mountain station of the Küssnacht-Seebodenalp cable car or the large car park, which is located directly next to the mountain station.

This easy winter hiking trail is suitable for young and old and offers unique deep views of the sea of fog.


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.
