About the trail
This is a trail on the green slopes of Mount Rigi, with views of Lake Lucerne. Be sure to combine this walk with a visit to the top of the Rigi!
From the train stop Rigi Staffelhöhe, you'll walk down to the car free village Rigi Kaltbad. From there, you'll descend further, crossing meadows and forests, until you reach the train stop of Freibergen.
The starting point Rigi Staffelhöhe is the second rail station down from the top of the Rigi. The route can be extended by starting from Rigi Kulm (the top, 40 minutes extra) or Rigi Staffel (first station down from the top, 20 minutes extra). Also you can easily walk this route the other way round: ascending instead of descending.
