Ybriger 7-Egg-Weg

A high-altitude trail along seven distinctive peaks in Central Switzerland and through the Ibergeregg nature preserve, winner of the 2019 «Landscape of the Year» award. The views of the Alps, lakes and valleys are awesome.
The hike begins at Chli Sterne in Hoch-Ybrig after a gondola and chairlift ride. Then it continues on foot to Spirstock, with the Forstberg and Druesberg at your back, a view of Muota Valley and Stoos to the left, the endless expanse of Lake Sihl, Lake Zurich and Zurich Oberland to the right.

From Spirstock the route continues past the Laucheren-Chappeli.The views from the chapel across to the mountains of Central Switzerland are amazing. Via Windegg and over Sternenegg the trail leads to the top of the Ibergeregg Pass with a guest house and a Lady chapel. The nature preserve located there is one of Europe’s most bio-diverse. Ibergeregg has numerous low and high moors. These received the Landscape of the Year award in 2019 from the Swiss Foundation for Landscape Protection.

The 7-peak hike continues gently up and down on a gravel road past the Zwäcken alpine farm. Locally made alpine products can be tasted here. Via Müsliegg the trail continues to the next peak (Stäglerenegg), where the path very briefly enters a forest and exits near the Holzegg ski hut. The wide trail with views of the Alptal region passes the Brother Klaus chapel and reaches the peak of Holzegg. The mountain restaurant is located at the foot of the stunning Gross Mythen Mountain, the landmark of Schwyz. This is a great place to take a last look at the impressive steep rock wall, at Schwyz down below and nearby Stoos Mountain. Taking the gondola down to Brunni is definitely easier on the knees. The bus transports hikers back to the Einsiedeln railway station.
