Traveling with pushchairs or wheelchairs

Many of the paths on the Zugerberg mountain are easily passable or even tarmacked. However, the walks described partly pass through woodland trails and turnstiles.

Notes on the above routes
Trail 1 – Rabbit is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. However, there is a turnstile on the section between Räbruti and Hintergeissboden. You can avoid it as follows: After Räbruti, stay on the road towards Fiselstuden and follow the road back to Hindergeissboden. Then continue on the route described.

Trails 2 – Fox and 3 – Stag are not suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. There are lots of turnstiles along the route.

The following routes are also easily passable:

  • Zugerberg railway mountain station to the Schattwäldli playground and on to the restaurant Hintergeissboden.
  • Trail 13
  • The Zugerberg Bahn mountain railway is wheelchair-compatible. Further information can be found in the Travel advice section.
