Summer in Brandnertal

In the heart of the mountains

Surrounded by the Raetikon mountain range, the small mountain village of Brand, heart of the valley, is located on 1,000 metres above sea level. The Alvier brook, whose banks are lined with romantic walking trails and cosy benches that invite you to rest for a while, cuts through the valley. The mountain meadows are full of rare flowers and herbs. It is a place where you will feel at home immediately.

Whether it is sports, relaxing in nature or leisure and fun – you will find all those things, sports and leisure activities, hiking trails and, last but not least, an abundance of nature, directly at your doorstep.


Brandertal boasts 400km of groomed winter hiking trails.

Whether you’re in the mood for mounting the 2,965m high Schesaplana peak, or a small, but exquisite tour – there is something for everyone in Brandnertal.

Splashing fun

Have fun splashing around at the Alvierbad, fed by clear spring water from Brand and brought to a comfortable bathing temperature with solar energy. The natural swimming lake surrounded by a big lawn is a popular location for swimming and relaxing.

Your kids will love it too: they will splash around, build sandcastles and make first attempts at swimming in the kids’ pool of the Alvierbad children’s paradise..

After a day in the mountains, our Kneipp facility will refresh your tired legs and give your body and mind an energy boost.
