New Glarus, WI - America's Little Switzerland & the Wilhelm Tell Festival
More than 160 years after it was founded, New Glarus has maintained much of its Swiss heritage and old world traditions. Swiss-style chalets and flower boxes filled with red geraniums grace the streets of the village and Swiss flags fly next to the American flag at many businesses and homes. Old World meat markets, restaurants, and a Swiss bakery are also found in downtown New Glarus, along with folk art, museums, and Swiss-style shops. Join us for a memorable visit to New Glarus and the Wilhelm Tell Festival.
