The panoramic view to the south is dominated by the impressive Tödi with its unmistakable glaciated peak. Braunwald holiday attractions include beautiful themed trails, climbing routes, rose gardens and the family-oriented skiing area.
Braunwald can be reached by funicular railway from the valley town of Linthal. This unique traffic-free resort in eastern Switzerland, situated at an altitude of 1300 metres has been awarded the official‘Families Welcome’ seal of quality. Particularly popular among the themed trails around Braunwald is the 'Zwäärg Baartli’ dwarf trail, which takes you to the original settings described in the fairy story book of the same name. In the fairytale hotel, the Bellevue, the hotelier has been telling fairy stories to spellbound children every day since 1976.
