High up on the sun terrace, the summer and winter sports venue of Braunwald sits enthroned over the valley of Glarus, surrounded by a fantastic panorama of mountains, with the peak of Tödi a real eyecatcher. Its unique top is a glacier that draws and enchants the eyes. Bikers find everything they need in Braunwald: Comfortable shelters, tricky tails, tough uphills and technical downhills. The half day tour on the top of Ortstockhaus rewards you with an objective impression of the character offered by this area.
