Glärnischhütte SAC 1990 m

Located at the foot of Glärnisch, whose névé is visible from the Swiss Mittelland, and close to Vrenelisgärtli, the legendary summit. What is the story about Vreneli and her garden, and why is it glacier now? Often visited by mountain hikers, in summer it is also the starting point for experienced mountaineers to ascend one of the most popular high alpine summits in Glarnerland, Glärnisch. A climbing park and bouldering possibilities are close to the cabin.
