Slate factory

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).

Braunwald

Panorama tour between the Glarner giants, Mt. Glärnisch und Mt. Tödi, after departing from the car-free sun terrace of Braunwald.

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.
