Via Rigi to the summit of the Hohe Salve

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.
