Take the cable car Salvenbahn I up to the middle station of the Hohe Salve. Then follow the well-marked route along the forest track and you will get to the lovely lake Salvensee which is situated on the sunny side of the Hohe Salve, directly beneath the summit.
After a break, the tour goes on over even terrain to the mountain inn Rigi, which can be reached in more or less half an hour. Now follow the gravel path straight ahead until the sign “Mittelstation 1h”. Follow that sign along a gently winding path downhill and enjoy the marvellous view. Keep following the signs “Mittelstation” but take care! There is one turn-off which can be easily missed out – it is on the left and leads you off the gravel path (there is a signpost though!). Now you can enjoy a stunning view of the surrounding peaks and villages while hiking up and down until you get back to the path to Gasthof Tenn and the middle station.
