Portrait in English
Be at home on the sunny side.
Unique living next to a mountain lake yet near important centres.
On the sunny side of life, above the fog, recharge at the source of nature’s strength and still quickly reach the important centres. Discover unique residential areas and the security of the most beautiful valley in the foothills to the Swiss Alps – incomparable panoramic views that mirror in the clear mountain lake. Pure recuperation for body, mind and soul. To be at home where tradition bestows roots and openness welcomes the new.
A piece of home – with security
Living with the positive feeling of security, sheltered by stability of values. Returning to a piece of home and to oneself – from the hectic pace into the calm rhythm of nature as the source of strength. Time to breathe a sigh of relief, nestled in the valley as a place of retreat and revitalization.
Local yet central
Secluded and yet centrally located. Escape within 20 minutes from the cities of Zug and Schwyz up into the sun terrace in Oberägeri. To Zurich in 45 minutes, Zurich airport in 60 minutes. Away from the noise and still near the arteries of mobility: 20 minutes to the national highways A2 (Basel-Chiasso), A3 (Chur-Zurich), and A4 (Zug-Lucerne).
Down-to-earth and modern
A togetherness of diverse cultures: Tradition and modern spirit; locals – new arrivals; seniors – young people; local trades specialists – international management executives. Lovingly decorated traditional farmhouses next to modern, significant architecture; a mix of industries from IT and stock brokerage to trades through farmer and forest ranger. Colourful village culture from the Legoren carnival and mid-Lenten bonfire to the village and lake festival, concerts and culture at the lake. Morgarten with its monument and the famous annual shooting competition – this also is Oberägeri.
For connoisseurs and epicures
Hospitality and good taste find their expression in the qualitatively superior gastronomic choices – with restaurants renown beyond the region.
Neighbourly contacts, closeness to family and friends shape life in the village. Numerous clubs, neighbourhood festivities and the “Wuchemärt” (weekly market) reveal a distinct community orientation - with efforts toward a lively village core.
Openness and clear engagement for the socially disadvantaged. Solution-oriented and pragmatic in its support; including family-complementary measures.
Favourable taxes – premium infrastructure
Modern, well-maintained infrastructure and public amenities with an optimal cost/performance ratio. High quality educational system from primary to upper grades as well as private schools. Also, an innovative lakefront concept in the near future.
Recreation at the doorstep
Recreational paradise for the entire family: Swimming, sailing, hiking, walking, jogging, bicycling, skiing (at Raten, Sattel-Hochstuckli, Nollen) all within 10 minutes by automobile or public transport. Ägeri lake includes attractive waterside facilities, camping and hiking paths in the surrounding hills (at Raten-Gottschalkenberg) – appealing for locals and guests.
Innovative – cooperative – integrative
Competent client and service-oriented administration based on application of effective and efficient standards. Sustainable community development founded on input by the population, sensible cooperation with neighbouring communities and collaboration within the regional association. Modest growth as objective.
