Safe stay

Leave your everyday life behind. Treat yourself to the special mountain experience of Rigi Kulm. Of course, the health of our guests up here is very important to us. With our hygiene protocols in the hotel and in the restaurant we take the necessary measures to ensure that you can enjoy your time on the Rigi without any worries.

Special hotel experience

The Rigi Kulm Hotel is currently open every weekend. Our hotel guests eat à la carte. This is currently a special luxury that we are delighted to offer you when you stay with us. The sunrise on Rigi Kulm is a dreamlike experience and a crowning highlight of a stay at the Rigi Kulm Hotel.

The culinary offer

The self-service restaurant at the Rigi Kulm Hotel will once again be open from Wednesday to Sunday. At the weekend, we also welcome our guests in the a la carte restaurant. The terrace is of course also open when the sun is shining.
We are thrilled to finally be able to share the world-famous panoramic view again.

Make the gift of Rigi Kulm!

A stay on the top of the queen of the mountains is a wonderful gift for your dearest, particularly during this special time. Choose a voucher from our shop and offer an unforgettable time out.

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.
