Schwyzer Höhenweg

Schwyzer Höhenweg

The Schwyzer Panoramaweg is characterized by three history-steeped mountains: the Rigi, Rossberg and Mythen. Spectacular scenery and views deep into the valleys of Switzerland’s founding canton as well as of the Zugersee and Vierwaldstättersee lakes.
The Schwyzer Panoramaweg is characterized by the three history-steeped mountains; Rigi, Rossberg and Mythen: each with its own story to tell. Mainly railway history was written on the Rigi. The history of the Rossberg is tightly bound to the disastrous date of 2 September 1806, when a gigantic mass of rock crashed down into the valley from the slopes of the Gnipen, burying 457 people. The history of the Mythen is also geological. The Mythen are actually all that remains of a layer of rock which has otherwise been completely eroded north of the Alps.

Reason enough to combine the three hiking worlds on the Schwyzer Panoramaweg. In so doing, you cross the Rigi and Rossberg, while you hike along the striking Mythen. The spectacular scenery and views deep into the valleys of Switzerland’s founding canton, as well as of the Zugersee and Vierwaldstättersee lakes, can be easily admired from the Schwyzer Panoramaweg. There are also plenty of places to stop for a refreshing drink along this remarkable route.
