Arriving by train, the only transport options in the car-free town
are electro cars or beautiful horse-drawn carriages which add to the winter wonderland appeal. Bahnhofstrasse, the lively main street, is lined with a fantastic variety of stylish shops, restaurants and bars.
For a special dinner, reserve a table at the Michelin-starred Heimberg, or for a more low-key evening try Schwyzer Stuebbli in the Schweizerhof Hotel where you can also enjoy live Swiss music from 5pm each day. Warm up by the fire at Chami Bar in the Pollux whilst enjoying a glass of wine or perhaps a glass of Swiss Highland single malt whisky!
