Observation point


Känzeli is one of the most popular lookouts on Mt. Rigi, because it's easy to get to and rewards visitors with a fantastic view.


An easy hiking trail with a gentle incline leads visitors up through the trees from Rigi Kaltbad to Känzeli and takes only around 15 minutes. From the lookout platform, you'll be able to see the impressive Alpine ranges, the rivers flowing into Lake Lucerne and the entire region surrounding Lucerne through to the Swiss plateau.

A BBQ area, plenty of seating space and a telescope make it an ideal spot for visitors young and old. In good weather, the Mt. Rigi oRIGInals will also be on hand with tips and information about the area.
