The Adrenalin Backpackers Hotel Braunwald is located directly on the Via Alpina Route 1. The panoramic trail runs from Grotzenbüel over the Chnügrat and through the Seblengrat Gallery in the rock for about 300 meters in altitude.
Once at the top, hikers enjoy the view of the characteristic peaks of the Tödi and the Ortstock. A wonderful view of the high alpine mountain range of the Glarus Alps is also offered by the Nussbüel trail.
Flowering meadows and shady forests form a varied natural landscape. On the way, many cozy places invite you to linger.
Via ferrata with easy, medium and high level of difficulty
Not far from the Gumen mountain inn, the beginner's and children's via ferrata leads into the mountain world. Ideal for beginners is also the Franz Schumacher memorial route to Leiteregg with moderate difficulty (K2).
Experienced adult climbers venture up the K3 route to Leiteregg and its continuation to Vorder- and Mittler-Eggstock. Ambitious climbers conquer the Leiteregg Linthpark route and the Colltex route over the Mittler- and Hinter-Eggstock with the difficulty level K5.
High above the valley, behind dense fir trees, little vacation guests follow the tracks of the dwarf Bartli. From mid-June to October, the friendly native of Braunwald comes out of his hut and leads families through his magical forest.
On the way, eight fairytale locations are waiting to be discovered in more detail. Children from the age of three can experience imaginative adventures at the Brummbach Falls with its water playground and at the dwarf castle in an imposing rock crevice.
Leisurely explore the beauty of the Glarnerland on a horse-drawn carriage ride. The horse-drawn carriages are ready for boarding at the mountain station of the Braunwaldbahn.
The ride takes you through the car-free Braunwald to Nussbüel, past picturesque farms and pretty chalets, with imposing mountain peaks as a backdrop. If you would like to combine the carriage ride with typical Swiss culinary delights, book an excursion with the aperitif and fondue carriage.
With the paraglider you discover the Glarus mountains from above. In summer you take off from the paragliding launch site Braunwald-Dorf or from the Gumengrat into the adventure. In winter you start from the paragliding launch site Gumen.
After a few steps you take to the air and float down to the valley as lightly as a bird. Beginners get to know paragliding on a tandem flight.
