Mountain Hike to Urmiberg

Rigi

Rigi Kaltbad – Rigi Scheidegg – Gätterlipass – Urmiberg – Brunnen

Mount Rigi offers a cornucopia of hikes but the hike from Rigi- Kaltbad to the Urmiberg is one of the prettiest and most popular ones. One can glean up to four lakes simultaneously, as well as a splendid alpine panorama. Along the way, traditional mountain inns offer snacks and meals. Finally, at the end of your hike you can sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic cable car ride down to Urmiberg.

Our hike starts at Rigi Kaltbad. Walk along the lower Kaltbad path to Rigi First. At "First" turn right on to the spectacular Felsenweg – continue on the path until you reach the mountain inn Schild. Here turn right and rejoin the gravel path which was once the original Scheidegg railway track.
 
At Unterstetten, walk across the old railway viaduct and then take the small path up the Dossen hill and onto  the Seeweg. Enjoy the breathtaking views of Lake Lucerne and the Alps. The path ascends via Rotbalmegg, Oberstafel upto Hinder-Dossen. Here you rejoin the Scheidegg trail until you reach the Scheidegg mountain restaurant. 

A cable car service operates from Rigi Scheidegg down towards Kräbel with connections onto the Arth Rigi Railway towards Arth Goldau. You can however continue hiking towards Brunnen. Follow the ridge downwards to the Gätterli restaurant. Here bear left, until you reach the sign post to Egg (c 100 m) – then turn right.

After about 30 mins.  you’ll reach the forest path, this path will take you up to Egg 1288 m a.s.l. and onto the look out point Gotterli. Follow the signs to the cable car and continue walking downhill towards the cable car station and the Urmiberg restaurant.  The cable car will take you down to Brunnen.
