Slow down everyday life with carriage rides

Slowing down your everyday life means concentrating on the really important things, starting something new and, above all, treating yourself to something good again: Your body, mind and soul will thank you for it. And all this in Switzerland! So why go far away when beauty is so close?

Why wander far away when good things are so close …

The words are based on the opening verses of Goethe’s quatrain: „Willst du immer weiter schweifen? Sieh, das Gute liegt so nah. Lerne nur das Glück ergreifen, Denn das Glück ist immer da.” (“Do you want to ramble on and on? Look, the good is so close. Just learn to grasp happiness, because happiness is always there.”)

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1775 on the Rigi

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe June 17-19, 1775 on Mount Rigi

As a reminder: none other than Johann Wolfgang von Goethe took the opportunity to climb Mount Rigi on his first trip to Switzerland in 1775. He was absolutely thrilled and wrote in his diary: «Ringsum die Herrlichkeit der Welt» (“All around the glory of the world”).

Experience the Rigi from a different perspective: Let the horses take you on a leisurely ride through the countryside, in a carriage in summer and in a sleigh in winter.

Enjoy the silence and, in winter, the crackling of the snow under the hooves and runners. Or listen to the birdsong and breathe in the fresh mountain air. A fantastic view of the mountains of Central Switzerland and Lake Lucerne awaits you.

Pure romance with a horse-drawn carriage

Whether in bright sunshine or under a starry sky – a carriage ride up the Rigi is even more romantic than transportation on the nostalgic cogwheel railroad. Enjoy the view on a one-way or round trip.

A carriage ride combined with a delicious fondue is a very special experience. Cheese not your thing? Then simply sip a fine glass of Rigi sparkling wine with your date or the love of your life on a romantic ride.
