The Linth (pronounced [ˈlɪnt] "lint") is a Swiss river that starts near the village of Linthal in the mountains of the canton of Glarus, and flows into the Obersee section of Lake Zurich. It is about 50 kilometres (31 mi) long.
The textile industry of the canton of Glarushe started because it could use the water power of the Linth. Today, the river drives the Linth–Limmern power stations in its upper reaches.
