Slate mining defined the history of Elm and the Sernft Valley right up into the 19th century. Today the "Landesplattenberg Engi", a former slate mine, is open for guided tours.
In the valley where the ex-ski star Vreni Schneider started her amazing career, where the Swiss "Zitronenbrause" comes from, and where the famous Martinsloch is located, a magnificent biking area awaits discovery. In the region where slates and Ziegerstöckli are produced, one single trail follows after the other. Around you, the fascinating mountain giants of the Alps of Glarus are the backdrop of your tour.
The peaceful holiday region of Elm / Sernftal is surrounded by the mountain scenery of the Glarus peaks. The Tschingelhörner and Martin’s Hole are natural monuments of national significance. Twice a year, the sun shines directly through the 16-metre hole in the rocks on to the church tower of Elm.
