    I started the trekking in the public parking that exists at the foot of the cable car station in Kriens, small village next to Lucern. My initial idea was to climb the whole mountain, hiking to the summit. But this was ...

    Good views on a nice day, there are lots of options to make it longer. Wouldn’t advise on a wet day due to lack of views but also there are quite a few waterfall crossings which are absolutely fine, but maybe not if rain...

    This is a stunning peak but an incredibly touristy one depending on your route. Having a late start we did it by the tourist route and got the funecular from Vitznau to Rigi Kaltblad over half way up the mountain. Pricey...

    Easy flat lake hike. Not much to it. (except for 3 sections on wet narrow single trails, rest can be cross skated. These sections can be easily avoided)

    Not really a hike, but a nice and easy sunday walk of about 3 hours.

    Short but fairly muscular run (well most of the way up the Rigi is a fast hike rather than run). The descent is steep and slowish. Route starts in Weggis. During the first 10 km to of ascent to Rigi Kulm it follows th...
