At night, the atmosphere in the Alps is truly unique. A magical sense of calm fills the air. The darkness of night reveals undiscovered aspects of the landscape and accentuates the surrounding natural soundscape. Head out and explore while others are sleeping.
Hiking enthusiasts, moon-lovers and those seeking to escape the everyday take note – Mt. Rigi is not only worth the trip during daylight hours. The Queen of the Mountains also has much to offer under the silvery light of the moon. The new full moon hike from Vitznau-Hinterbergen will take you under the cover of darkness to Rigi Kulm, where you will be rewarded with a spectacular sunrise. This display of natural beauty is followed by a delicious brunch at the Chäserenholz alpine farm. A local guide will entertain participants with interesting facts about Mt. Rigi as they expertly lead the group through the enchanting Alpine landscape. It’s truly a hike for all the senses.
