The 6 km Hochstuckli Panorama Round Tour takes you right around Mount Englestock in the Sattel-Hochstuckli winter sport region. As the name implies, you are greeted with many panorama mountain views along this leisurely walk: from the Mythen to the Fronalpstock, from the Rigi all the way to the Pilatus, and far across the Uri Alps when the weather is clear.

A revolving gondola takes you from Sattel in the valley to the resort village of Mostelberg. The 5-minute ride up is a panorama show in itself, as the gondola turns twice around its axis in that time. The panorama trail is well-marked and well-groomed. Along the way you also pass through snow-covered forests and mountain farms where you can also buy local cheese.

A highlight of the tour is the crossing of Europe’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge (374m) at the end of the tour, just before getting back to the Stuckli Rondo gondola station in Mostelberg. Back in 2010 when the "Raiffeisen Skywalk" was first opened to the public, it was the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world! The bridge hangs 58 m above the wild Lauitobel valley, and is open during operating hours of the Sattel-Hochstuckli lifts.
