Want to get out of the city for the day? On Sunday i visited the amazing Mettmen-alp in the Canton of Glarus. Take the train to Schwanden and take the bus along the valley to Kies (or drive,) and enjoy the steep gondola ride up to the Stausee. Once there you are treated to the stunning sight off the clear waters of the lake and the valley stretching off into the distance. Now i have hiked here a few times and i can recommend the following route as it takes in caves and there is a very nice place to by a cold beer on the route.
Alternatively you could, (as i did on Sunday,) hike up to the Berglimattseeli and follow the route that takes you around the Gandstock and back to the the Mettmen gondola station. The advantage of this is you can stop at the Naturfreundhaus and finish your hike with a cold drink and bite to eat. Either way the views take your breath away. The following photos were all taken on Sunday. No pro-photography. No fiter.
