If you will be traveling by air or train, here are details to help your planning. Zürich airport has a convenient train station directly at the airport (no taxi needed). Purchase electronic train tickets online here: sbb.ch (within 30 days of travel date), or buy your ticket at the station (automated ticket machine or ticket office) before boarding the train (otherwise Fr. 100 fine applies.)
Suggested journey details: For the most scenic route, I recommend you search sbb.ch for connections like this
EXAMPLE—> From: Zürich Airport; To: Vitznau; Via: Lucerne
This will produce a list of possible itineraries. Choose one with code “BAT” (code for BOAT).
When you exit the ship at Vitznau you are at the foot of the mountain, Rigi. Very close to the ship station you will find the historic Rigi Bahn. It is a funicular (special cogwheel train that travels a steep track up Rigi). Go to the ticket window and tell them you are part of our group staying at Felsentor. The ticket agent will give you 50% discount on your round-trip Rigibahn ticket (under CHF 40). You can pay with card or cash.
As you ascend the mountain on the Rigi Bahn the views are exciting, so you must listen closely to the station announcements. Do not miss your stop which is Romiti/Felsentor. Now you follow the trail to the West (that is to your right if you stand facing downhil toward the lake). Follow the trail 10-15 minutes to the retreat.
The retreat is a 10 minute hike along an alpine trail away from all motor sounds. No cars, no trains, only the sounds of nature.
Plan to arrive at Felsentor between 3pm and 6pm. Please inform email@example.com if you plan to arrive later.
