Excursion

On the occasion of the publication in 2020 of Sheet 161 Linthal of the Geological Atlas of Switzerland 1:25,000, you will learn about the landscape features and the formation of the Alps during this hike.

We will encounter various significant examples that demonstrate the impact of streams and glaciers. There will also be plenty of opportunity to discuss the formation of the Alps, e.g. when we view the famous Glarus Thrust, which has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 2008 and helps us to understand the structure of the Alps.
