Unique World Heritage panorama at the gondola station Grauberg
From the upper Grauberg gondola station you can enjoy a unique view of the Tschingelhörner with Martin's Hole and the Glarus Thrust. Two weak zones cross in the legendary Martin's Hole: a soft, flat, dark marl layer and a steep fracture surface. In this area the erosion was able to quickly remove the limestone and Martin's Hole with a diameter of more than 15 metres was created.

The world's first trail that was built using 100% renewable energy. The result - a 6 km long Enduro Trail in the spirit of Greenstyle.
