The legends of Schwyz

It is said that legends loosely draw on places and times and tell of events long past. Schwyz is famed for its many legends, as there are many places in and around Schwyz that are wreathed in legend. This is because there have been strange goings-on at various times in Schwyz. There are an estimated 300 legends in total that not only tell a story and provide information, but which also serve as a caution, warning and object lesson. However, you shouldn’t believe every tale you hear.
