Glarus

Glarus

Glarus, the smallest major town in Switzerland, is both urban and close to nature. The city, which was rebuilt on a chequerboard pattern after the big fire of 10 and 11 May 1861, is watched over by striking mountains like Wiggis or vorderer Glärnisch. If you want to get out into nature, you don't even have to leave Glarus. The Klöntal, one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Alps, is just as close as the rambling and skiing area of Schilt, which you can reach in a few minutes from Ennenda by the new Aeugstenbahn. Besides all this nature, Glarus has art and culture aplenty to offer - for example, at the Glarner Kunsthaus.
