Rigi Burggeist, Gersau’s local leisure destination, is situated on the sunny southern slope of Mount Rigi. This is well worth a visit at any time of year.
When spring comes to the mountains, nature awakens with a display of splendid foliage. In summer, the mountain lets you escape the heat of the valley. A magnificent sea of mist awaits you in autumn and reveals a panoramic view of the surrounding mountain peaks. In winter, downhill adventures on skis, snowboards or toboggans beckon. Snowshoe and ski tours in pristine nature guarantee pure relaxation.
Following the route of the former Rigi-Scheidegg railway line, which once transported guests to Rigi Kaltbad, this 7-kilometre panoramic walking trail with fantastic 360-degree views, barbecue areas and resting places offers an unforgettable walking experience. The trail links up to the Rigi cable cars in summer and winter.
