Tour information

  • Stop at an Inn


Snowshoeing does not require any special technical knowledge and can be practised by anyone, even on the prepared winter hiking trails.

You can hire the necessary equipment from the Rigi-Sport-Kiosk Rigi Kaltbad rental centre.


Vitznau: A4 exit Küssnacht am Rigi, follow the signs to Vitznau


There are plenty parking spaces avaliable at the valley stations. Fees apply.

However, we recommend public transport instead of cars: lean back, be stress-free and do something good for the environment.

Romiti, the starting point of the hike, can be easily reached via Vitznau with the cog railway.
