Braunwald here we come!!

Our newest camp in the beautiful Glarnerland offers formidable views of the Tödi!
 

In our newest friLingue camp you will learn English or German in small groups of 6 participants. 

During 15 hours per week we study English or German. In the afternoon, we explore the surroundings together, go on an action-packed excursion or organise exciting workshops - and there's no shortage of fun!

After an intensive long day, we have a delicious homemade dinner from our typical friLingue cuisine and then we continue with the evening programme, where we really go all out again.
 

Braunwald - the sunny terrace of the Glarnerland - ideal for learning German or English.
 

The camp in Braunwald takes place in our Adrenalin Backpacker Hostel. Here we have plenty of space: three large terraces, single, double, 4-bed, 6-bed and multi-bed rooms and a bar with syrup and other non-alcoholic delicacies! There's also a table football table and a pool table. 


Braunwald is car-free and lies on a sunny terrace high above the sea of fog. The resort can be reached by car from Zurich in just over an hour. Or you can take the accompanied train from Zurich HB, leaving on Sunday afternoon.
