Hoch-Ybrig - Ybrig is the local dialect form of Iberg – the village is dominated by the peaks of the Drusberg, Forstberg and Twäriberg. This chain of mountains forms a ridge separating the area from the Muotatal and the Glarnerland region. A cable-car leads from Weglosen in the valley of the Waag, which can be reached from Unteriberg by car, to Seebli (1460 m) at the foot of the Roggenstock. From Seebli chair-lifts continue on up to the Hoch-Ybrig top stations of Spirstock (1771 m) and Sternen (1856 m).
The mountain pass over the Ibergeregg links Ybrig with the canton capital Schwyz. To the south, high above the Muotatal, there is also the quiet little village of Illgau.
The centre for holidays and sports of Hoch-Ybrig, and the sunny villages of Ober- and Unteriberg are popular destinations for day trips and holidays. 170 km of footpaths, a golf course, toboggan run, mountain bike routes, tennis courts, mini-golf, children’s playground, indoor pool, fishing and swimming, windsurfing and sailing on the nearby Lake Sihl – such is the diversity of this family-friendly region.
Cable-cars and chair-lifts give access to a hiking area of woods and alpine meadows, with places to rest and have barbecues, geological and botanical themed walks, nature conservation areas, mountain lakes and traditional mountain restaurants. A riding school, rides by horse-drawn carriage and a summer sledging run are yet more attractions.
