Tobogganing on the Rigi

This well-groomed toboggan run extends for 3.1 kilometers (1.9 miles) and 460 vertical meters (1,500 feet) through the enchanting winter landscape on the Rigi, a popular excursion mountain in Central Switzerland.


The most popular toboggan run on the Rigi, a much-loved excursion destination, leads from the Rigi Kulm summit station along the rail tracks to Rigi Staffel. From here the slope steepens, which naturally makes it faster from this point. At Rigi Klösterli there are shuttle trains to return tobogganers to the start of the run.

Toboggan Hire

Toboggans and other winter equipment can be hired from the Rigi Sport Kiosk and at Rigi Kulm.

Catering Facilities Nearby

There are restaurants at both the start and the end of the run serving everything from snacks to fine cuisine.

Special Remarks

Rigi also has four other toboggan runs with a total length of over 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) for even more tobogganing fun.
