The Mythen – landmarks of Canton Schwyz

No, the mountain towering over the Schwyz valley is not the Matterhorn. But the Grosser Mythen looks quite like it and has a similar effect on visitors from near and far.


The well waymarked footpaths are perfect for anything from short walks to challenging hikes. Hiking on the Grosser Mythen is demanding: the ascent is tough, the view from the summit unique.

The list of outdoor activities offered by the Mythen region is long and includes educational trails, MTB trails and cycle routes, paragliding and rock climbing.


In winter the region offers 50 kilometres of ski slopes as well as snowshoeing, walking, cross-country skiing, sledging and ski touring. Not forgetting rails, jumps and obstacles in the Mythenpark.
