Circular hike in the snow

Winter Hike

Winter hike Rotenflue. The snow still has us fully in its grip. Off into the snow, when the white splendor beckons with all its charm. You will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the Mythen region. With the Rotenfluebahn you are quickly at the starting point. The hiking trails are also very well signposted.

Rotenflue Winter Hike

Overwhelmed by the wintry sight, the tour can start. The trees have clothed themselves with a warm winter coat and the branches bend under the load. When the sun falls on the snow, it sparkles in all colors, like little diamonds. The white of the snow shows a sharp contrast to the blue sky. Overwhelmed by the wintry sight, I start with the hike. Like in a picture book, fir trees line the left and right. In between, the view is free to the surrounding mountains.

The path leads over the paraglider jump-off point. But also the pedestrians are offered a lot. On the round walk you can see the Pilatus, Mythen and with a clear view also the Lauerzersee and a little further back you can see the Vierwaldstättersee. 

Circular walk and outward journey

The round walk takes about 35-40 minutes. 2 km long is the groomed winter hiking trail and the altitude difference is about 80-90 m. This is an ideal half-day excursion. The winter season lasts from mid-December to about mid-March. Take the train to Schwyz. From there you change to the post bus to Rickenbach. The Rotenfluebahn takes you to the starting point of the round hike. 

Great View, Winter Hike Rotenflue

My tip: Get out in the snow and enjoy the landscape. For sledding fans there are also sledding slopes.
