Hacking Villa Diesbach

A space for creative minds in the heart of Switzerland


The Hacking Villa was built in 1874. It is located in Diesbach and welcomes writers, designers, architects, geeks, hackers from all over the world. If you want to visit or stay with us, just get in touch with us at hackingvilla at ungleich.ch.

A Hacking Villa?

We are located in the heart of the pretty mountain valley Glarus and we love our surrounding and the way of living here. We want to share this spirit with you and this is why we opened up this villa to the public. The hacking villa is part of the Digital Glarus project.

What is there?

The Hacking Villa has 13 rooms in total with 9 rooms open for staying. It is located next to a pretty waterfall, a cross-country skiing area, some horses and a lot of cows.

And more importantly: a direct 10 GBit/s network connection to the next Data Center, the Data Center Light.

You can have a sneak preview of how it looks inside on the Hacking and Living in Villa Diesbach page.
