New Glarus

America's Little Switzerland

America’s “Little Switzerland”, New Glarus, is located in the heart of Green County in Southern Wisconsin. Its rolling hills dotted with small towns, farms, and woodland pastures are much like the alpine farmlands of Glarus, Switzerland. New Glarus was originally settled by a hardy band of 108 Swiss pioneers in 1845 who left the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland during an economic crisis. Since then, succeeding generations and a steady stream of new Swiss immigrants have kept alive the community’s Swiss-German language, folk traditions, and music. This remarkable mix of old and new Swiss in New Glarus – plus an enduring dedication to preserving ties with the homeland has made this little town a unique place to live, work, and visit.
