frequently asked Questions

Are there any shopping facilities locally?
Braunwald has a village shop and the Schwettiberg-Lädeli. Information about opening times can be found here and here. The opening times are very limited, both shops are closed on Sundays! The shops are about 25-30 minutes walk from the glass igloo.
Due to the situation, we recommend bringing the necessary food from the valley.
