Geo City Walk Glarus

Discover fossils on a walk through the town of Glarus!

"Experience geology" sounds like mountain climbing and scrambling. It doesn't have to be. On a leisurely stroll through Glarus, a geological phenomenon awaits you at almost every house corner: fossilised spiral snails or arthropods from the dinosaur era in the town hall fountain, stone slabs full of oysters from nearby Wiggis as the plinth of a house façade. You can even get a close look at a shark in the middle of Glarus: In a window frame hewn from shell limestone, you can count shark teeth at your leisure. Ask at the visitor centre for the overview map with background information on the various stations.
