Schwyz ridgeway

Hiking trail

You have to earn the panoramic view on the 1,579 m high Rossberg. You can only reach the highest point in Zug with muscle power.

And the climb up the mountain, which is small by Swiss standards, is a tough one. No matter where you start your tour, the Rossberg always offers a sweaty passage. You will enjoy the magnificent view at the highest point, the Wildspitz, all the more.

The landslide is also impressive.  Every year on 2 September, in the afternoon at five o'clock, the big bell of the Goldau parish church rings. This commemorates the terrible natural disaster of 1806. Within a few minutes, a gigantic mass of debris buried the valley between Rigi and Rossberg.
