MOBILITY LIFTS AT THE RAILWAY STATIONS

The Rigi railways use access and exit ramps, and wherever technically possible, mobility lifts, which makes boarding and exiting much easier. Furthermore, for group trips there is a vehicle which can be reserved on 041 399 87 87.

ACCESS TO THE CABLE CARS

Alongside both cogwheel railways, there are seven cable cars which open up different altitudes on Mount Rigi. The Weggis – Rigi Kaltbad cable car is handicapped-accessible (with an accompanying helper). The other railways (Goldau/Kräbel – Scheidegg, Obergschwend – Burggeist, Küssnacht – Seebodenalp, Vitznau – Hinterbergen, Vitznau – Wissfluh and Brunnen – Urmiberg) do not meet, or only partially meet, the requirements. An accompanying person is required. Please enquire directly with the mountain railways. 

WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE TOILET ON THE PANORAMA ROUTE

The entire panorama route between Rigi Scheidegg and Rigi Kaltbad/Chänzeli covers 7.5 km. At the elevation of Unterstetten, there is now a new handicapped-accessible toilet. It is located at the rest area.

E-HANDICAPPED BUS

Thanks to the support of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation and other sponsors, a wheelchair-suitable electric bus with space for two wheelchairs has been available on Mount Rigi since June 2017.
