Explore at your own pace

Our Manor is located at the southern end of the village of Nidfurn and offers you a tremendous view of the Glarus Grosstal and the majestic Tödi. You can also easily reach some other interesting tourist spots such as Braunwald, the Klausenpass and the lake of Klöntal, Elm, Schwanden, Mettmen and Glarus.

In the Grosstal prevails a particularly microclimate,

meaning that there is always a pleasant breeze passing through

to cool you down on hot days. In winter, we have very little fog. And even when it is raining, the surrounding countryside presents you with countless impressive views and atmospheres.

Old Style Garden

Different old trees around the house reflect a resting forest microclimate, the whole arranged as an enchanted old English castle’s garden of the 18th century. Feel the unique atmosphere of an original 16th century Swiss Manor.
