Spend the night in a private and noble setting. Authentic historical and stylishly furnished guest rooms. Panorama view of the Glarus valley.

The impressive and 500-year-old manor house is today a charming private hotel with four romantic and differently furnished rooms. In addition a large museum forms part of the ensemble - spread over six floors and where one can literally experience living in the past! The Landvogthaus is a non-smoking establishment run personally by the owner, and a dwelling place where magnificent views of the Tödi further enhance each stay.

The Landvogthaus in Nidfurn in its current form dates back to around 1600, incorporating older cellar rooms, and probably more, of an older building. The history of today's building still offers some unsolved riddles. We know that a wealthy ancestor of the patrician Blumer family intended to build a grand residence in Nidfurn in the second half of the 16th century.

Landvogt Peter Blumer (1587-1669) gave the residence its current form. He had two additional stories with richly appointed rooms, as well as two sumptuous larger rooms in the attic, added to an existing residence. Symmetrically lined up along a broad central corridor, each floor features several splendid rooms with high, richly decorated ceilings and Baroque paneling as well as lovely Late-Gothic window niches. To the oldest, Late-Gothic decorative elements, later renovations added furnishings from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The grand residence, for a long time the tallest in all of Glarus, was occupied by Peter Blumer's descendants for about ten generations. The building is one of the few Late-Medieval residences in Switzerland largely still surviving in original condition. The current owners have restored the house with painstaking care, introducing just a few modern touches, such as in the kitchen. Much of the house is now open to the public as a Museum für Wohnkultur; cultural events are also regularly held here. The old manor house is also a private hotel with four individual, stylish guest rooms. The Landvogthaus has been a member of Swiss Historic Hotels since 2012.
