The Glarus Alps (German: Glarner Alpen,French: Alpes Glaronaises) are a mountain range in central Switzerland and part of the Western Alps. They extend from the Oberalp Pass to the Klausen Pass, and are bordered by the Urner Alps to the west, the Lepontine Alps to the south and the Swiss Prealps to the north-east. The eastern part of the Glarus Alps contains a major thrust fault which was declared a geologic UNESCO world heritage site (the Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona).
