Rustic mountain inns and traditional Swiss cuisine, a host of campfire sites ready for barbecuing, the aerial adventure park Seebodenalp above Küssnacht, an abundance of unspoiled nature: There’s plenty to choose from for a great timeout. And did you know that Rigi Gold – the local mountain beer – is also brewed there, using their own fresh spring water?
At an altitude of 1020 metres, high above the village of Küssnacht am Rigi, Seebodenalp is a veritable hiker’s paradise, offering stunning views of Lake Luzerne 365 days a year.
The Seebodenalp can be reached by a quite narrow but two-way road from Küssnacht. If you don’t have a car, or if the thought of steep inclines coupled with narrow roads and infrequent passing places give you an anxiety attack, then there remains the choice of taking a comfortable aerial cable car from Küssnacht to the Alp. As a final and least scary but most strenuous alternative, you can always walk up if you don’t mind a climb of some 600 meters.
Once up there, the plateau opens up, ideal for short walks or more serious hiking, providing spectacular views over Lake Lucerne, Mount Pilatus, the chain of the Alpine Mountains as well as the Central and North-Western part of Switzerland right to the German and French borders. There is also a restaurant right at the end of the aerial cable car and more further back on the plateau. A great place to visit!
Beneath the Rigi
Light to moderate hikes, a varity of restaurants and alpine inns – the Seebodenalp offers something for everyone. A popular climb is further up to the Rigi via a number of different hiking trails.
The majestic location between three lakes, the easy accessibility by rack railroad or aerial cableway, the panoramic view of the alpine rim and the wide range of leisure activities make the Rigi a popular excursion mountain.
