Obergschwend - Rigi Burggeist aerial cable car

From Monday, July 6th on the cable car Obergschwend-Rigi Burggeist the mask obligation applies.

A place to stop and breathe deeply. Rigi Burggeist is above Gersau and can be reached by the cable car from Obergschwend in eight minutes. The cable car runs every 30 minutes on xx.00 and xx.30. In summer or in winter, peace and quiet in natural surroundings are guaranteed here.

Rigi Burggeist is located at 1551 metres on the beautiful Gersau mountain behind. The cable car from Obergschwend, about 5 km above Gersau, takes you to a place where the unspoilt natural scenery, the peace and quiet and the wide-open views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Lucerne are bound to help you unwind in no time at all.

The cosy mountain inn is ideal for couples, families, single travellers, groups and clubs. Nature lovers, those looking for peace and quiet, sports enthusiasts, connoisseurs and adventurous people will all get their money's worth at the Burggeist. There are numerous hikes starting from Rigi Burggeist – ranging from the really easy to the more challenging, such as to Rigi Hochflue.

The skiing and sledging runs are very popular with families. And, more than that: after heavy snow, the skiing area here is a top tip for free riders.

On Tuesday the aerial cable car is closed, except during school holidays in Canton Schwyz and during ski operations.

Please check the current operating status before your arrival.
