The Mythen circular hike from Holzegg is a wonderful hike under the spell of the two myths and promises exceptional views.

You start at the Holzegg mountain station and walk towards Haggenegg and via Günzigs, Hasli back to Holzegg. During the hike you always have the "Gross" and "Chli" Mythen in view, whether behind, beside or in front of you. You also walk a short distance from Haggenegg down along the "Jakobsweg". Hunger and thirst are also catered for along the way - you can take a break at Skihaus Holzegg, Berggasthaus Holzegg, Alpwirtschaft Zwüschet Mythen and Berggasthaus Haggenegg. The hike leads through the "Mythenbann", the oldest hunting ban area in Switzerland dating back to 1492, where, depending on the season, wild animals such as chamois, eagles and marmots can be seen.
