Hinterbergen is on the south side of Mt. Rigi at an altitude of 1100 m. It is an area of unspoilt natural scenery, boasting impressive biodiversity and stunning views. In just a few minutes up the cable car from Vitznau takes you to the top station and the cosy mountain restaurant. Hinterbergen is an ideal starting point for hikes in the Mt. Rigi area, for example along the Natural Treasures trail to Rigi Kaltbad or via the Vitznauer-/Gersauerstock to the Wissifluh.
There is normally an operator manning the top station in fine weather and for groups. The cable car runs on demand (no timetable).
One very special experience is to take the Hinterbergen cable car by night. Thanks to the automated payment machines at the valley station, Hinterbergen can be reached 24 hours a day, making it the perfect destination for a memorable night-time walk under the full moon.
