This attractive trail to Rigi First is initially almost completely flat and easy to complete, as it follows the old Scheidegg railway line. The Alps with their year-round snow can be seen rising up from the southern banks of the lake. From First you go down to the cosy alpine inn Heiri-Hütte, where you can enjoy a hearty mountain snack. From there, the trail winds its way elegantly down to the pilgrimage site of Klösterli, which is steeped in tradition and was formerly home to many Capuchin friars. The "Maria of the Snow" pilgrimage chapel was built in the baroque style in 1689 and is one of the most beautiful mountain chapels in the world. The altarpiece is a copy of the famous "Maria of the Snow" painting which hangs in the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.
