The Queen of all Mountains is calling


Mountain summer on Rigi Kulm

Daily life remains in the valley

Would you like to enjoy the panoramic view in peace and silence? We recommend to take the first or second railway ride to the summit. In the morning the rhythm is even quieter and you experience the queen of the mountains dewy fresh. We look forward to welcoming you as our guest at Rigi Kulm!

The culinary offer

The opening hours of our restaurants are new: In the self-service restaurant you can have your meals Mon–Fri from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Sat/Sun from 9:00am to 5:00pm. In the À-la-carte restaurant we are happy to serve you on Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.

The hotel is open

The opening hours are currently adapted to the new situation. You can stay overnight at the Rigi Kulm Hotel on weekends (Friday–Sunday). For groups and seminars (from 8 persons) we open the hotel with a gastronomic offer also during the week. Book by telephone: +41 41 880 18 88

While the view from the Rigi is legendary, the mountain experience is unparalleled. The 360º all-round view at 1800m ASL depicts the incredible number of 125 named Alpine peaks and 13 lakes. If you stay at the Rigi Kulm-Hotel, you’ll have the chance to witness the divine spectacle of colours at sunrise and sunset.

Upon seeing the rippling waves from the sea of fog, many struggle to find the right words to describe this experience and often just smile quietly and joyfully. The nighttime tranquillity is pure relaxation, in which you can even look out for shooting stars. The Kulmhaus was opened on the Rigi in 1816. In 2016, the Rigi Kulm-Hotel was celebrating its 200th anniversary.

Hospitality with tradition!


Self-service restaurant at lunchtime

The cuisine on offer at the Rigi Kulm-Hotel is something quite different. You can sit out on the sun deck with a local Rigi sausage, a portion of chips and a Coke … the view of the Alpine panorama is included. In the Jugendstil dining room, you will be served an exclusive 4 course meal, supplemented with a fine wine.


You quickly feel at home at the Rigi Kulm-Hotel. The host family, the Käppelis, who have owned the Kulm Hotel since 1949, are delighted to personally see to its guests’ well-being.


All 33 rooms have been refurbished and decorated with the colours of sunrise. They also have hardwood flooring and comfortable beds. Wi-Fi is available both in the rooms and the whole hotel.


In the à la carte restaurant in the Jugendstil room, the menu and ambiance are particularly pleasing. This is where the Kulm Hotel’s tradition is sustained, but they are nothing if not flexible. Guests enjoy the food and the familial atmosphere here.

Each visit on Rigi Kulm is a highlight

Exhibition in the Kulm Hotel

In the “From pimples to selfie sticks – 200 years of Rigi Kulm” exhibition, the guests’ motifs from every age since 1816 will come to life through their travel accessories. A short, but exciting, journey through the ages.
