The village of Stoos is set in a delightful alpine landscape at the foot of the Fronalpstock mountain, on a sunny
alpine plateau of the same name at about 1300 m. Stoos is reached by the steepest funicular railway in the
world via Schlattli (from Schwyz on the road to Muotathal) or from Morschach by cable-car. The little village,
with its hotels, holiday apartments and group accommodation is an ideal holiday destination for families.
Fronalpstock (1,922 meters) is the local mountain that can be reached on foot or with one of the cable cars.
From this imposing viewpoint, there is an impressive panoramic view of ten lakes, down to Brunnen and over
to the Rütli, Pilatus, Rigi, Säntis, the high Alps and the central lowlands as far as the Jura.
The Stoos peak pass is valid from Schwyz to Stoos, Fronalpstock and Klinggenstock which allows for access to
many of the mountain walking trails.
