Braunwald is a family-friendly summer and winter holiday resort on a sunny terrace in the Glarus hinterland. The panoramic view to the south is dominated by the glaciated peak of the Tödi.
Braunwald holiday attractions include delightful themed trails, climbing, rose gardens and a family skiing area. The holiday resort can be reached by funicular railway from Linthal-Braunwaldbahn in 7 minutes.
The ascent to the Klausen Pass, which links the Glarus with central Switzerland, begins in the valley town of Linthal. After the first couple of sharp bends, the road reaches a broad plain, the Urnerboden. Although the Pass is still a long way up, you are already on the biggest Alp in Switzerland and on the soil of the central Swiss canton of Uri amidst 1200 grazing cows. According to legend, the people of Urn took the alp from the Glarus folk by trickery. A mountain path with a splendid view of the Tödi and Clariden mountains links the high plateau of Braunwald with the Urnerboden.
