Hike with magnificent views of the snow-capped Glarner Alps
This winter hike from the mountain station Ämpächli up to Hengstboden and from there up to the Munggä-Hüttä is richly endowed with fantastic panoramic views, with the snow-capped peaks of the Glarner Alps making for a magnificent backdrop.
A unique piece of Glarus industrial history. In this factory, founded in 1898, they mainly used to make school writing slates, involving over 30 different processes, and later score boards for card games and other souvenirs. Here, in the only working slate factory in Switzerland, the slate dust, sawdust and smell of lime are combined with the latest educational approach to museums (group guided tours only, by arrangement).
