slowUp Schwyz - Swiss Knife Valley

The Swiss Knife Valley, majestically framed by the Mythen and Rigi mountains and the lakes of Lauerz and Lucerne, offers the most unique backdrop for a multifaceted slowUp in the heart of Switzerland.

The 20-year-old slowUp movement is a veritable success story. Each year more than 400,000 people participate in one of the 19 events in various Swiss locations.

The event

The slowUp has been staged in the basin of Schwyz since 2010. The 30 km round-trip takes you through the municipalities of Schwyz, Ingenbohl-Brunnen, Lauerz, Arth and Steinen. 

A multifaceted fringe programme offers something for everybody: young and old, associations and families, couples in love or even lonely hearts will enjoy the special aura of this car-free day of activities. The next slowUp Schwyz - Swiss Knife Valley will take place on Sunday, 15 May 2022.
