The village of Sattel is on the road over from Goldau and Schwyz towards Lake Aegeri and the upland valley of the Biber, in the direction of Einsiedeln and Lake Zurich. It was on the territory of Sattel, in the hamlet of Schornen by the Morgarten mountain, that a battle took place on 15 November 1315 between the Habsburgs and the people of Schwyz and their confederates, which went down in history as the “first freedom battle” fought by the Confederation. The Habsburg army was utterly wiped out. Today the Battle of Morgarten is remembered by a memorial on Lake Aegeri and a chapel.
Sattel-Hochstuckli offers a really special cable-car experience: "Stuckli Rondo" is the first cable-car in the world to have revolving gondolas, taking passengers in comfort from Sattel up to "Stuckli Run" summer sledging run (with steep-sided bends and tunnels), to the jumping paradise of "Stuckli Jump" (trampoline and bouncy castle), the Engelstock adventure trail, the starting point for walks and hikes and to the mountain restaurants.
There’s plenty of fun, sport and adventure in summer. The new pedestrian suspension bridge "Raiffeisen Skywalk" is the highlight of the Sattel-Hochstuckli adventure area. Visitors enjoy the experience of being on a suspension bridge on Europe’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge - which is 374 meters long and 58 meters high. The "Raiffeisen Skywalk" can be easily combined with circular hiking tours. It is also wheelchair- and stroller-friendly.
In winter, the region becomes a family-friendly winter sports area with 14 km of slopes and 20 km of cross-country ski tracks. For sledgers, careering from the Mostelberg to Sattel is a real adventure (and the run is even open at night on certain dates). Snow-shoe tours make for a wonderful day in the snow, rounded off with a fondue or “moonlight” menu.
