Field trip to Gumen


An optional field trip to Gumen will take place on Thursday (4th July). If you wish to take part in this trip please select the correct registration rate or contact us.


The group will take the train from Zürich to Braunwald (approx. 1hr 49min). Train leaves Zürich just after 07:30. Once at Braunwald, it is a 20 min walk to the Gumen cable car, which transports people to Gumen. From Gumen there are a range of easy and beautiful walks offering panoramic views of the idyllic Glarner mountains and a range of interesting apline flora. You will need hiking boots and a packed lunch for the walks. More ambitious hikers may wish to hike back to Braunwald from Gumen, others can take the cable car back.

We will have several guides leading smaller groups and so there will be a choice of walks available. Each hour there are trains back to Zürich from Braunwald which should enable people to take the train back to Zürich as required, if they have travel on Thursday evening.
