Welcome to the Village of New Glarus  ~  America's "Little Switzerland"! 

New Glarus was established as a Swiss Colony in 1845 and incorporated as a Village in 1901.  The Village has retained its Swiss charm with Alpine-style architecture, ethnic festivals and Swiss delicacies.  The Village is located in beautiful Green County in south central Wisconsin.  We are just 28 miles south of Madison and 17 miles north of Monroe on State Highway 69.  To take a quick look at what our Village has to offer click HERE to watch a Chamber of New Glarus video.
