Touring on motorbike, and passed through Oberalppass. Stunning mountains, and wonderful fast road down to Andermatt. So near Andermatt that I popped back up after lunch later in the week.

The source of the rhine River is from the hill slopes near this pass. There is a lighthouse from the lower Rhine that has been transported to the pass. The pass can be reached by car or train along the mountain railway.

The main reasons being the pass,the viaduct and a three course lunch. Sadly the sun we all love gave so much glare that for the most interesting parts a decent photograph was impossible,having said that it is well worth making the effort.

Lovely twisties down into Andermatt and great scenery. A good taster for the Furka Grimsel and Susten passes which you can do as a circular route from Andermatt.

Not one of the more extraordinary passes in Switzerland but relatively easy to access. If you have the possibility rather visit the nearby Furkapass and the Nufenenpass for more spectacular scenery.

When hiking the pass, plan on an entire day. We took the trail up to the summit, across a small ridge with magnificent views straight out of the Sound of Music. We were there in early September with a gorgeous sunny day and in the...More
