Braunwald in Glarnerland – a Hiking Area and Family Paradise

Braunwald is located at 4,120ft (1,256m) altitude and is the ideal starting point for exploring the mountain world.

The Braunwald holiday resort is based at the heart of the Glarus Alps. However the region also has a great deal to offer outside of the ski resort: you can enjoy hiking, Alpine climbing or mountain biking surrounded by panoramic Alpine views and fresh mountain air. In summer, a trip out into the beautiful mountains is ideal for families. Children can also enjoy adventure walks, horse-drawn carriage rides or llama trekking.

The valley station of the Linthal Braunwaldbahn railway is just an hour’s drive away. From here, take the cable car up to Braunwald. This car-free resort offers undisturbed relaxation in nature.
