The mountain village with character

The cosy Sigristen House, local tradition and an abundance of nature – that is what Illgau is about! It lies on an idyllic sun terrace which is protected from the wind at around 200 metres above the Muotatal.

The widely spread farms are inhabited at 1,300 metres all year round. The small community of approx. 790 persons knows how to maintain their strong traditions and characteristic peculiarity.

Destination for nature lovers and families
Thanks to the strong and quiet location, Illgau has become a holiday destination for those who love landscapes in the countryside. Hikes and walks lead to scenic outposts which display the Mythen or Muotatal from another angle. On the winter hiking and snow shoe trails, nature belongs to you.

Families, too, have discovered the excitement of Illgau. The Chäferliweg is a hiking trail for children. Thanks to the lovingly constructed forest playgrounds, the hike becomes a day’s excursion for families. Tobogganing fun can be had at the cable car Illgau-Vorderoberberg.

Highlights in Illgau

Out and about with the family or drawing strength from nature – Illgau offers both. In the mountain world between Ibergeregg and Muotathal time runs at its own slow pace.

Energy site Illgau

Stop and recharge your batteries. Nature gives you strength. The area of St. Karl ob Illgau has a strong energy. On the bench you can enjoy the view of the majestic summits and without noticing it your batteries are recharged.

Folk music and tradition

Illgau folk music is especially well-known and popular. It is said that in each Illgau family at least one instrument is played. Alongside the traditional chapels even bands that play modern rock and pop music perform.

Traditional events such as the Sennenchilbi, which takes place each year on Fasnacht Monday, meet great interest. In Illgau the Muotathal weather tellers meet regularly and present their weather prognoses with funny sayings for the next half year.

Two small cable cars

The cable car Ried-Illgau connects the attractive mountain village to the public transport network. The Illgau-Vorderoberberg cable car will take you to the starting point of many hikes, tobogganing and skiing fun.

Embedded in the winter sports area of the Mythen region

The small cable car Illgau-Vorderoberberg provides a direct access to the ski pistes in the Mythen region. If you do not want to ski on the same pistes, try out the ski safari: a skiing round trip through the Schwyz Pre-alpine landscape. You will be out and about for around three hours, and with rustic piste pubs it could take a bit longer.
