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.
