Rigi Event Marquee – the big venue in the Alps

Gäste-Service Rigi,  Bahnhofstrasse 7,  6354 Vitznau

The Event Marquee at Rigi Staffel can accommodate up to 600 people, enjoys stunning mountain views and is the ideal setting for very special events. 


The Event Marquee covers an area of 950 m2 and has already played host to the general meetings of various renowned companies who appreciated the symbolism of heading up the mountain and the great heights of this spectacular location. No matter whether organising a product presentation, exhibition, company celebration, concert or an Alpine market – the Rigi Bahnen event team will provide advice and help work out the best way to make your event a real success.

Rigi events begin with an uphill trip to the Event Marquee at 1,600 m above sea level. Upon request, the uphill and downhill journeys can be made in a stylish vintage carriage. Rigi Bahnen possesses the most diverse and well-maintained fleet of vintage carriages in the world. Countless vehicles from the railway's early years have been lovingly restored. It is also possible to take somewhat slower but authentic steam-powered trip to the summit. The two steam locomotives (max. 200 people) which will really take every event to the next level!
