Our house is located in the center of Braunwald. From the funicular it is only a few meters to the Adrenalin. Grocery and sports stores are just a few steps away.


The car-free vacation resort of Braunwald is situated in the southernmost part of the Glarus region, on a gently sloping and southeast-facing sun terrace, high above the valley of the Linth, at an altitude of 1,300 m.a.s.l. This means that Braunwald is far away from the hustle and bustle and traffic. The wonderful panorama of the Glarus Alps with Ortstock, Tödi, Biferten and Hausstock is within reach. "Best conditions for relaxing vacations!"
