Discoveries in Glarus: fossils from the dinosaur age in the town hall fountain, stone slabs filled with oysters by a house facade. We can even feel the tooth of a shark – shark teeth can be counted serenely in a window frame hewn from shell limestone.

Obersee Lake – Klöntal Lake

Lengthy hike through the Obersee Valley and over the Längenegg Pass (1,814 meters) to the Klöntal Valley. From Lachengrat (highest point of the hike) the peaks of the Glärnisch seem close enough to touch. The view of the Klöntal Lake rewards you for your efforts and entices you to a refreshingdip in the lake.
