From Grotzenbüel the slightly ascending path takes you about 55 minutes to the Chnügrat (ascent 320 meters), offering you a magnificent view of the Bächital and the Glarus Alps. In 20 minutes you reach Seblengrat. Continue through a tunnel in the rock to Gumen. There are popular starting point for climbing adventures (via ferrata), as well as paragliding. You can also find a huge variety of plants in this area. Carry on via Ortstockhaus Bergrestaurant - the path leads slightly downhill in about 1 ½ hours back to Grotzenbüel.
The Braunwald panoramic hike invites you to linger at various points and is guaranteed to offer an unforgettable hiking experience. Plenty of detours and attractions along the way, whether it's coffee and cake in the Gumen, Ortstockhaus or Chämistube Bergrestaurants, barbequeing on a fire-pit or a trip into the fairy tale kingdom of Bartli the Dwarf.
