Start the tour at the middle station of the cable car Hopfgarten and walk on the paved road past Gasthaus Tenn uphill. At the first turn-off keep to the right and follow the sign “Rigi 45 min”. Turn left at the 2nd fork and continue along the steep, uneven forest path for which you need a certain amount of stamina and fitness.
Follow the signs to Rigi and enjoy the shady and quiet section through the forest. After a break upon a bench and fantastic views down to the valley the tour now continues only moderately climbing across meadows and pastures and later along a gravel path to the mountain inn Gasthaus Rigi, where your efforts will be rewarded with a hearty, mountain snack.
Those who don’t feel like a break yet, keep on walking up the gravel path until the summit of the Hohe Salve where you will be rewarded with a stunning, 360° panoramic view.
