Rigi Burggeist – the family mountain

At 1,551 metres above sea level, Rigi Burggeist stands for unforgettable family excursions and spectacular panoramic views.

The cable car takes visitors right up to Rigi Burggeist and into an idyllic landscape that offers numerous options: hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, mountain climbing, or simply relaxing and enjoying the local cuisine. Located high above the municipality of Gersau, Rigi Burggeist can be reached by cable car in 10 minutes. The cable car runs every half-hour. 

The Rigi South Face Safari, in combination with the large playground and a variety of barbecue pits, is predestined for a family outing.

In summer, children will be drawn to the playground situated in front of the restaurant terrace. Rigi Burggeist offers numerous hiking options – from easy trails that are suitable for children to more challenging routes such as the one to Rigi Hochflue.

In winter, the ski and toboggan runs are highly popular with families. But that’s not all: after heavy snowfall, the skiing region becomes an insider tip among freeriders. And one thing is certain: no queuing up for the ski lift or the cable car here – ever.
