The natural rock formation, the warm climate, the natural history, generations of hardworking farming families and the conservation of the protective forest all contribute to the richness of the flora and fauna found on the south-facing flank of the Rigi.

Walk: Rigi Kaltbad - Unterstetten - Hinterbergen - Vitznau

The outing starts at Rigi Kaltbad and follows the route of the old Scheidegg railway line to Rigi First (alt. 1453 m), where you turn right on to the cliff path with its views of the Uri, Unterwalden and Bernese Alps. At your feet lies Lake Lucerne and its numerous bays and historic resorts.

At Unterstetten you cross the bridge then climb for 10 minutes to the Seeweg path and on to Rotbalmegg (alt. 1457 m). The path descends via Glettialp down to Hinterbergen (1103 m) where you can enjoy a break at the restaurant. An aerial cableway operates between here and Vitznau.
