Guided herb walk on the Rigi

Circular hike on the Rigi
Saturday, 26th August 2023
from 10:00-15:30

Hike up Rigi on a circular hike, first steeply but slowly, approx. 340 metres in altitude. You will learn a lot about the nature and healing powers of various plants that can be found along the way. The hike leads through the forest, over streams and meadows. Enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Lucerne and Mount Pilatus. During the lunch break, with a fantastic view, treat yourself to a fine picnic from the Restaurant Swiss-Chalet or bring your own picnic. Afterwards, the hike leads downhill again, past bushes and trees, and you arrive back in Greppen in the middle of the afternoon.

The herb walk is away from the crowds, so you can devote your full attention to nature in peace and quiet.
