Rigi Burggeist & Zwärgliweg

The family hike on the Zwärgliweg from Rigi Burggeist to Obergschwend is an easy hike. It goes mainly downhill. The hike along the Zwärgliweg, which is just under 4 kilometers long, takes about 1.5 hours and involves a descent of about 539 meters. As the name suggests, the Zwärgliweg trail has many garden gnomes with pointed hats and other fairy-tale characters to discover. After the hike, enjoy the view and a Gersau cheesecake on the large terrace of Rigi Burggeist.
