STOOS RIDGE HIKE

360° panorama on the world-famous ridge hiking trail from Klingenstock to Fronalpstock

If you want to experience the full panorama, hike the popular ridge trail from Klingenstock to Fronalpstock.

The Schwyz mountains, the peaks of Uri and the Glarus peaks vie for your attention. The ridge trail keeps what its name promises: vertically down on the left lies Lake Lucerne, on the right the view drops off into the Muota valley.

The hike is classified according to the difficulty level T3 of the SAC scale. For the hike, good hiking equipment, surefootedness, shoes with non-slip soles and good physical condition are strongly recommended. The hiking trail is secured with chains from approx. beginning of June until approx. beginning of November.
