Seebodenalp - Alp Ruodisegg - Alp Räb - Känzeli - Rigi Kaltbad

An impressive mountain experience awaits you. The hiking route scores with breathtaking panoramic views and untouched nature.

The Seebodenalp hikers' paradise is situated on a large, protruding terrace at 1020m a.s.l. above Küssnacht am Rigi. You hike leisurely on the first section of the trail, practically flat through the avenue of trees. On your route you pass the Ruodisegg alp, before taking the steeper ascent towards the Räb alp under your feet. From the alpine farm, the path becomes even steeper, but the view at Rigi Känzeli is worth the effort. The hike can also be done in the opposite direction.



The current operating status of the railways and hiking trails can be found here. So that future generations can also enjoy the Queen of the Mountains, we ask you to dispose of your waste at the stations or take it home with you. Thank you.
