Autumn Sunday at Stoos

Stoos is a mountain village located at alpine plateau in the canton of Schwyz, 1300 meters above sea level. In winter it turns to ski resort, but in other seasons is a popular hiking destination. On one Sunday in October, my husband and went there to hike.

Stoos village is car-free and is accessible only via the funicular railway from Schwyz-Schattli or via cable car from Morschach. We opted out for the railway. The ride took about ten minutes and wasn’t particularly scenic. Because it mainly runs through the woods, tall trees vail the views. Even so, the ride was so short that didn’t bother us.

It was beautiful warm autumn day

After we arrived to Stoos, we spontaneously decided to take the chairlift to Fronalpstock mountain (1922 m).  We could’ve hiked up, but we were lazy. We didn’t feel like walking uphill for two straight hours and for that reason we opted for easier option – chairlift.

Once we arrived at the top of the Fronalpstock, we went to the viewpoint where we were able to enjoy the impressive panoramic views. While most of the valleys were still covered with thick layer of clouds and fog, the tops of mountains Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn were peeping out above the clouds. Similarly, parts of Lake Luzern (Vierwaldstättersee) were covered with fog, while others were already basking in the warm autumn sun.

Amazing panoramic views

We treated ourselves with the delicious apple strudel with vanilla sauce in the restaurant at the Fronalpstock and enjoyed the warmth of the sun. Then it was time to move our lazy asses and started walking. We hiked all the way down back to Stoos.

On our way down to Stoos we enjoyed the beautiful alpine scenery. Only thing missing were the cows and the sounds of their bells. They were already taken back to the valley for the winter.

I think, Stoos is great alternative to more popular mountains in Central Switzerland. The prices are a bit lower than at other summits, but the scenery and the views are equally nice and scenic.

    That looks amazing! The second photo – of the trail stretching out before you and headed into the mountains – is like an invitation to me. It makes my heart jump at the idea that today all I have to do is hike, hike, and hike!

    Like you say, this sounds like a great alternative to alpine resorts in Switzerland, saving you some money as well. It looks beautiful – as do all of your adventures and the apple strudel is right up my street! Thanks for for joining us on #adventurecalling I hope you can again when we open again tonight.

    Your photos always look so beautiful, especially on a bright clear day. Switzerland is such a beautiful country, but I really don’t know much about it. It’s so interesting to read your posts and discover all of these amazing places. Also craving some apple strudel right now! Thanks so much for sharing with us #AdventureCalling

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking the time and
    actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never
    seem to get nearly anything done.

    doing a little research on this. And he actually ordered me dinner simply because I discovered it for him…

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately,
    but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content material as you probably did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hey there!
    I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my
    comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
    I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
