Rothenthurm Ski Hotel Guide - Ski accommodation

Rothenthurm

Switzerland’s largest upland moor, in Central Switzerland between Rothenthurm and Biberbrugg, has been successfully preserved. The broad moorland landscape is an important conservation area for plants and animals, but also a fascinating place for relaxation and adventure for visitors.

Winter
There are many kilometres of cross-country skiing tracks across the quiet moorland (skating and classic style, and a floodlit course). For winter walkers, there are prepared footpaths through unspoilt nature. There are also guided snow-shoe walking tours and rides by horse-drawn sledge across the moor. On the gentle slopes near Rothenthurm, Bennau and Biberegg there are family-friendly ski-lifts where there are hardly ever any queues.

Summer
The upland valley with its protected moorland landscape is a popular area for walking and cycling. There are outings to the Morgartenberg with views of Lake Ägeri (on the shores of this lake in 1315 the Battle of Morgarten took place, the first battle between the confederate forces and the Habsburgs), to the monastery village of Einsiedeln, or to the adventure paradise of Sattel-Hochstuckli, to name but a few. There is also provision for Nordic Walkers and riders.
