We descend on the winter walking trail, pass by the Rigi Kulm restaurant and will reach with a ascend of app. 50 m Rotstock, a great viewpoint towards the south and the southern shore of Lake Lucerne. You can take Lunch at the Restaurant Bärenstube, with tradional meals.
We walk then to Rigi Kaltbad and take either the gondola down to Weggis or the train to Vitznau. (depending on schedule). From both charming villages we can take the boat to Lucerne. End you trip with a walk through Lucerne and take then the train back to Zurich.
