Immensee - Kuessnacht - Greppen - Weggis - Vitznau - Gersau
Spring hike with panoramic views at the foot of the Rigi. The hiking trail leads along Lake Lucerne through mostly agricultural areas.
Discover the unique hiking trail with a wonderful panorama from Immensee to Gersau. The Rigi Lehner's path combines history, landscape, botany and much more. Your tour starts steeped in history by walking along the Hohlen Gasse in Immensee and reach a bit later at the castle ruins of the Gesslerburg in Küssnacht. The unique landscape reveals itself to you all the way to Gersau. On the way you will spot many lovely flowers and a recultivated chestnut forest from Greppen. Arrived in Vitznau, you will be admired by the vintage railway culture at the Rigi Railways. At the end of the hike, a nature trail leads down into the historical "Altfrye Republik Gersau".
