I dined at this restaurant hotel for a number of lunches and Ursina made every effort to make me welcome and I ate very good meals here. Salmon, entrec��te, chicken and local melted cheese dishes and every day in orders the house salad that was fresh and fantastic! Thank you for the great lunches and super conversation!

Fantastic views, beautiful, quiet village with plenty mixed difficulty walking opportunities. We chose Hotel Cristal because of the earlier review on here, the helpful responses to... More

We needed somewhere to stay for a couple of days before our cycling trip took a decidedly upwards turn towards the Klausenpass. While searching for hotels in Linthal on the valley floor, I came across the website for a resort called Braunwald referring to itself as the Sun terrace of the Glarnerland, 1300m up on a funicular and decided to...
