Glarus

Glarus, the smallest canton capital in Switzerland, nestles between mountains at the foot of the Glärnisch ridge. The mountain canton of the same name looks back over a long industrial history. Walkers, mountain climbers, cyclists and amateur geologists will discover a varied holiday region with plenty of interesting excursions.
On its way from Lake Zurich through the Linth Plain, the deeply carved Glarus valley branches southwards shortly before the Walensee. Mountains rear up steeply from the valley floor to an altitude of 1750 metres. The Tödi at 3614 m is the highest mountain in eastern Switzerland. The Glarus is a varied holiday region, but it also has a long industrial tradition, particularly in the field of decorative textile manufacture.

Since a huge fire destroyed the old quarters in 1861, the streets of the capital of Glarus have been rebuilt on a grid plan. The Glarus earned a world-wide reputation in the 19th century for its printed fabrics. Cyclists can discover evidence of Glarus’ industrial past along the 50km-long Industrial Trail.
