    Braunwald is located high above the idyllic Linth valley and is a car-free health resort. From the mountain terrace at 1.256 meters you have a fantastic view. Braunwald can be reached via a beautiful hiking trail or by cable car and is a popular destination. Even horse-drawn carriages go up from Linthal.

    A correction to Tamara’s tip: From Linthal no horse-drawn carriages go up to Braunwald. This beautiful mountain village can only be reached by funicular or on foot. One street is missing (luckily ...)!

    Car-free viewing platform over the Linth Valley, with a wonderful mountain view. Many hiking and MTB opportunities, as well as the Eggberge via ferrata. Reachable on foot, by MTB or comfortably with the funicular from the Linthal-Braunwaldbahn station. Outside of the season it seems mostly deserted, few shops and restaurants open!
