Rigi Scheidegg - Hinter Dossen - Unterstetten - First - Rigi Kaltbad


A fascinating and easy hike for pleasure hikers and families with children. The route follows the former route of the Rigi Scheidegg - Kaltbad railroad (1874 - 1931). On the way, many traces of the former railroad can be discovered, as the route leads over old bridges and through tunnels with a constant view of the Alps and the Schwyz valley basin.


The hike can also be done in the opposite direction.


For guests parking at the parking area Kräbel, I recommend following the path from Rigi First to Wölfertschen-First and taking the cogwheel train from there.

We recommend public transport instead of car: lean back, enjoy and do something good for the environment.
