This is a sustained uphill walk. Offering lovely view down across the lake, there is also the opportunity to see the train chug past you as you walk up to Rigi Kulm. The path is in excellent condition and there are plenty of benches and even several cafes on the way to Rigi Kulm. There are not turn by turn direction with this walk but it is very well signposted and follows the train tracks for most of the way. There are several places where you will cross the tracks. Always do with extreme caution and follow any local safety signs.
