Switzerland – A Trop to the Schwyzer Alps

Published: 2.4.2022
Today we make a beautiful family trip to enjoy some fantastic hiking. We will visit the amazing alpine resort of Stoos rising above Lake Lucerne.

Our trip strats off in Zurich. Here we take a public transportat crossing train stations of Leimbach, Arth-Goldau etc. This gets us to Schwyz village. From here, we may take a bus which takes us across Schwyz (Center) to Schwyz (Stoosbahn, Schlattli) and than we take a cable car to Stoos mountain village or a train to Brunner. Then we take a bus to Morschach village (a valley station). Here we step into a cable car and travel to Stoos village. We leave it up to you which route you choose. However, there are many bridges, tunnels, and viaducts along the road and it takes you about 75 minutes to complete.

Fun fact is that you can reach the village of Stoos only by public transportation .Cars are not allowed. The mountain village sits at 1300 meters. It is home to over 100. Tourists love to visit this place both in winter and in summer. We take a chairlift up Fronalpstock (1 921 m). We return to Stoosbahn cable car. The floor of the cablecar is stays leveled. Therefore, traveling is very comfortable even in steep rise. The cable car is a is unique machine from global perspective.

We leave the quiant village of Stoos and go up Fronalpstock. Up there is Furggeli mountain cabin including an observation deck. Upon climbing the obervation deck you may enjoy a magifnicent vista over the mountains of Glärnisch, Todi, Uri Rotstock, Pilatus, Weissentsein, Vosgen, horskou Rütli mountain meadow or the valleys of Reuss and Lucerne. From here you will also see Lake Lucerne dubbed the lake of four forest settlements. It is the fourth largest lake in the country covering an area of 114 square kilometers. Lakeshores mostly go steep up into the mountains. It looks like it is situated in four valleys. An interesting thing about Fronalpstock is that there is the largest amateur radio amplifier in the world.

Here you may either end your trip or set out to a more difficult trek up Klingenstock which takes about 2,5 hours with 400 meters of elevation. Thrilling mountain road which is secured by iron chains. Here you may enjoy panoramatic vistas over the Schwyzer Alps (a northeastern part of the Swiss Alps). You may join turistickou magistrálu, tzv. Cestu Švýcarska, which criss crosses the country of the Helvetian Cross.

A day long trip is best to conclude at one of many local restaurants. You will enjoy best local specialities. Despite high prices Stoos mountain resort is the right choice. Adventures you experience here will be long to remember.

You can do the entire trail on foot. However, a cable car will save you considerable energy (but not money). Choosing a slower pace you will climb the entire mountain easily especially had you as good weather conditions as we did.
