The car-free holiday destination Braunwald is located in the southernmost part of the Glarus region, on a gently sloping and southeast-facing sun terrace, high above the Linth Valley, at an altitude of 1,300 meters above sea level. This situates Braunwald far from hustle and traffic. The wonderful panorama of the Glarus Alps with Ortstock, Tödi, Biferten, and Hausstock is within reach. "Ideal conditions for a relaxing holiday!"
