Arrival to Küssnacht am Rigi
The Seebodenalp is one of the most beautiful vantage terraces in the Swiss Alpine foothills. It can be enjoyed at leisure, because it’s close to the Rigi Staffel. From Staffel to Kulm you can enjoy the company of rail travellers.
Down between the Rigi Kulm and the ridge leading to Rigi Scheidegg. Views of the Gnipen with the area where the Goldau rockslide started in 1806. Plenty of time in Goldau for a detour to the animal park.
Goldau/Lauerz – Sattel
The area of the rock slide is still impressive, with masses of debris and boulders and unusual vegetation now reclaiming the area. The Wildspitz, the highest mountain in Canton Zug, offers superb views of the lakes of Central Switzerland.
Sattel – Holzegg
After a demanding climb, the Hochstuckli is worth a detour. Panoramic views of the Mythen and Canton Schwyz. Then a gentle descent to Haggenegg, where the Schwyzer Höhenweg (high-level trail) and the Jakobsweg (Route of St. James) cross paths.
Holzegg – Einsiedeln
A tour under the spell of the Mythen, which are skirted to the “rear”. Seen from the Furggelenstock, the Grosse Mythen looks deceptively like the Matterhorn. Einsiedeln is famous for its magnificent monastery church and well-preserved village centre.
Departure or extension
You should be in good physical condition for the steep climbs in the Schwyz region. The paths are well signposted and easy to follow. Sure-footedness is especially necessary for the passage in the landslide area above Goldau.
