Last Minute Hike - Weggis - Rigi Kaltbad

Let's go to the Rigi again!

Hike up Mt. Rigi on the old traditional route. At the beginning of the 19th century guests from all over the world used this trail to reach Mount Rigi. They were either taken by special Rigi carriers or travelled on horseback.

We will go via Sentiberg, Heiligkreuz, to the Felsentor, where we might have a coffee break at the Hotel Felsentor.

The last part of the route runs parallel to the Rigi railway track from Romiti to Rigi Kaltbad.

Difficulty: Medium. 1000m up, 3.5 hours

From Weggis, 434 m to Rigi Kaltbad, 1'438m

If enthusiasm is still here, we can also go up to Rigi Kulm!

More details will come later

Train: 9.04 - 9-49 Zurich HB -> Luzern

Then boat to Weggis, starting at 10.12

Breakfast/coffee on the boat

Meeting point: we catch up in the first second class wagon we can get into!

Do not forget:

- Water

- Sun Protection and just in case wind protection as well

- Warm clothes just in case

- Food (Sandwich, Cookies, Chocolate, etc)

- Your ticket

- A big smile!

    Get on train platform 4 to Luzern at 9.04 if you do not find the group. I'll probably get onto that train from Thalwil at 9.14. See you later

      no group ticket this time. too much hassle, asking everybody if they have GA or half tax etc, then paying in advance, all this for a hike I organise for free. No.

    A friend who is a regular hiker wants to join. I hope it is not a problem.

      I do not want to manage a big group of unknown people. That's why the number of participants is limited.

  • Olivier P

    message on behalf of Guillaume: Dweep and Francisco on the waiting list are welcome of course

    August 9, 2014

  • Elena

    Can we swim in the lake or Kaltbad? It is a good opportunity for those who want.

  • Lydia L.

    Hi Guillaume, I live in Zug too. Could I meet the rest of the group on the train to Luzern (it will stop in Zug)?
