This mountain pass is a spetacular place where you can see to the Rhône quelle. There are two lakes at this pass and a hotel situated below this pass towards Luzern.

Passed across the Grimsel pass when making a circuit including Furka pass and Susten pass. Clear on the way up but cloudy on top. Dramatic scenery

Hi, I cannot answer your question, but we were around the area last summer, and we ended up visiting the Grimsel Pass, and I recommend it a lot, the drive and the view is superb!
