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.
The small holiday region of Melchsee-Frutt / Melchtal / Kerns lies at the heart of central Switzerland, surrounded by lakes and mountains. The centre for tourism in this expansive region is the high valley of Melchsee-Frutt at an altitude of 2000 metres, with its traffic-free, family-friendly resort on the shores of the little mountain lake.
The Grimsel Pass links the Hasli Valley in the Bernese Oberland with Goms in Valais. The pass road runs through a wild, sparsely grown mountainous region marked by granite rocks, reservoir lakes, and power plants.
The Simplon Pass (2005 meters) links the Canton of Valais from the town of Brig with the Divedro Valley and Domodossola in Northern Italy. The pass, which is usually open in winter, is praised as one of the most beautiful crossings in the Alps.
