Winter on Rigi Kulm
Catering on winter days
As every year in winter, we shift down a gear before Christmas. However, we would like guests who appreciate the panoramic view from Rigi Kulm to take a little time out. Therefore, the self-service restaurant remains open Mo-Fr from 10.00-16.00 and Sat/Sun from 09.00-17.00 in good weather.
Best Wishes for 2021
We hope that you can enjoy the holidays and the New Year with a small circle of loved ones. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a great start into a healthy and happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you again soon on the Queen of Mountains. The best way to make a reservation is by email.
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.
