Alpine pastures on the Rigi

The Rigi is often called the queen of mountains because of her characteristic shape. From here you can see the Pilatus, the Gotthard Massif and the many deep blue lakes of central Switzerland. This family friendly hike leads from one cottage to the next. You sleep in the hay and in cosy family rooms and enjoy the hospitality high up on the Alp.

Schöne Wanderferien um den Rigi
Nachdem die erste Hürde mit der Gepäckübernahme bei der Stoosbahn dann doch noch geklappt hat konnten wir die Wanderung in Angriff nehmen. Der Eurotrek Mitarbeiter hat am Bahof Schwyz gewartet (war bei ihm auch so notiert), ich bekam aber die Auskunft dass wir das Gepäck an der Stoosbahn Talstation fübergeben sollen. Ansonsten hat der Gepäcktransport gut geklappt. Ein Tip: Badehosen ins Handgepäck nehmen (See oder Wellness Rigi Kaltbad) Die Wanderrouten waren aussichtstechnisch sehr gut gewählt. Es gilt aber zu beachten, dass bei einer Familienwanderung der Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht zu hoch sein sollte, bzw. dies in den Unterlagen beschrieben werden müsste: Gratwanderweg Klingenstock nach Fronalpstock bei Regen ist hier vorsicht geboten. Alles sehr rutschig und wir hatten am Ende noch Nebel da kann es gut sein dass man sich zu nahe an die Felswand begibt. Rigi Kaltbad nach Seebodenalp: da hat es mehrere Leitern auf dem Talweg, welche teilweise sehr steil sind. Bei kleinen Kindern ist hier Vorsicht geboten und unseren Hund musste ich bei 2 Leitern Schultern um nach unten zu gelangen. Bei den anderen fand der Hund einen Weg durchs Unterholz. Ansonsten waren die Wege top gewählt mit immer speziellen Aussichten auf den Vierwalsstättersee oder Umgebung. Hinweis zum Zweiten Tag Brunnen - Burggeist: wenn man da noch bei Victoinox vorbeischaut kommt man erst am Abend an. Die Strecke zieht sich... man sollte nicht zu spät mit der Wanderung beginnen. Wichtig: Verpflegung mitnehmen, unterwegs gibt es ausser bei der Bergstation kein offenes Restaurant mehr.
Eurotrek AG answered:
Vielen Dank für Ihr ausführliches Feedback zu Ihrer Wanderung in der Zentralschweiz. Es freut uns sehr zu hören, dass Ihnen die Strecke und vor allem die Aussichten gut gefallen haben. Für die Verwirrung bei der Gepäckabgabe möchten wir uns vielmals entschuldigen. Da war bei uns im Logistikauftrag ein Fehler drin. Wir sind froh, dass Sie und der Fahrer sich am Ende gefunden haben. Besten Dank auch für Ihre Hinweis zur Streckenführung. Wir werden alle unsere Reiseunterlagen im Herbst überarbeiten und nehmen diese Punkte sehr gerne auf.
