Rigi Bahnen AG
Two rack railways, seven cable cars, hotels and restaurants, wellness in Mineralbad & Spa Rigi Kaltbad, hiking paths and many summits to climb, as well as summer and winter activities for young and old – that is the queen of the mountains.
With so many activities available, it is easy to forget about acting sustainably. However, it is important for the railway company Rigi Bahnen to raise its visitors’ awareness about topics like sustainable development, job creation, nature conservancy, climate protection, etc.
Rigi Bahnen AG’s sustainability philosophy: Our goal is to achieve great things for the environment through small steps.
Rescue Sand Lizard along the railway line
The habitat of the mountain lizards is threatened. At the same time, embankments are cut back, which is why the lizards lose their shelter. The habitat of the sand lizards is to be preserved. In order to achieve this goal, the Rigi Railways, together with the farmers on the mountain, draw up a maintenance plan for the slope maintenance along the railway line.
