Rigi Kaltbad - First - Station Wölfertschen First
This easy hike offers 2 in 1 pleasures of nature and relaxation.
The first section offers a fantastic view of Lake Lucerne and the snow-capped Alps on the southern horizon.
Are you a relish walker? Then you should not miss this tour. This wide hiking trail runs along the route of the former Rigi-Scheidegg railway. From the restaurant Bärenstube First it leads through a enlightened mountain forest with a view of the both sides of Mt.Mythen that majestically tower over the Schwyz basin.
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 use the marked winter hiking trails.
High profile winter equipment are needed: hiking boots, rain jacket, drink, food and possibly walking sticks.
I recommend to induldge yourself for a moment in the hearty Restaurant Bärenstube.
However, we recommend you to arrive by public transportations instead of cars: Lean back, enjoy and do something good for the environment.
Take the exit Brunnen from A4 highway, then direction to Vitznau - Weggis
