The Hotel Rigi Kulm has been welcoming guests for almost 200 years.
Remarkable for its unique location on the summit of the queen of the peaks, this hotel has 70 beds for hikers, individualists, walkers and nature-lovers. It is also the perfect place for a short break. Having been extensively renovated, the hotel is to reopen at the end of April 2007.
