Braunwald here we come!!

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


In our friLingue Ski Camp, you learn English, French or German in small groups of 6 participants. After the language course, it's off to the slopes: carving, short turns or stem turns? Together is the most fun!

At the Braunwald Language & Ski Camp we learn French, English or German for 12 hours a week. Then it's off to the slopes! We spend 15 hours a week exploring the Braunwald ski area. And when we are tired, a glance at the Tödi is enough to pause for a moment, catch our breath and let the snow fun continue!

After an intensely long day, we have a delicious homemade dinner from our typical friLingue kitchen and then we continue with the evening program.

Braunwald - the sunny terrace of the Glarnerland is ideal for studying French, 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 is also a table football and a billiards table. The child-friendly and sunny ski area is a 2-minute walk away.

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