Ein Werk in drei Akten: Susten – Furka – Grimsel

Manchmal muss man nicht weit reisen, um schön zu reisen! Unser Land mit mehr als 20.000 Strassenkilometern bietet auch einige der schönsten Alpenstrassen der Welt mit herrlichen Panoramen.

Ausserdem nehmen wir dir mit auf eine eintägige Ausfahrt, der dich über nicht einen, nicht zwei, sondern drei Pässe (>2000m) führt. All dies durch 3 Kantone: Bern – Uri – Wallis. Also spring auf und pass auf, dass du dich nicht in der Schönheit der Landschaft verlierst!

In kurze
  • Land: Schweiz
  • Startpunkt: Meiringen
  • Dauer : 3-5 Std, je nach Riding Style
  • Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten : Aareschlucht, Grimsel Hospiz, Reichnenbachfall, usw.

Ab jetzt auf Englisch oder Französisch (here)

Whether you come from Geneva, Fribourg, Basel or Zürich, we chose Meiringen as a starting point. Charming little village, it will offer you a pleasant setting to have a coffee / breakfast before an intense day of riding. Note that there are also several points of interest in the region:

  • Aare Gorge (here)
  • Sherlock Holmes Museum
  • The Reichenbach Falls (here), mythical place where Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty had their last fight.

And not to mention Interlaken, Luzern, Mount-Pilatus,  etc. Also, why not set aside a few days to explore the region?

Important information

Before we go any further, we wanted to draw your attention to some important things:

  1. These passes are not open all year round, usually from mid-June to the end of September. Also, check on the Alpen-Pässe.ch website before for the most up-to-date information.
  2. These passes are very busy, particularly on weekends and during the holidays: motorcyclists, cyclists, camper vans, etc. In addition, and it is very unfortunate, but the behavior of certain road users flirts with unconsciousness / dangerousness. Also, we can only recommend, if possible, that you go there during the week.
  3. In addition, the various cantonal police forces provide a dissuasive presence during times of high traffic, which should calm some pilot’s inclinations (code name Via Secura 😵)!
  4. The landscapes are breathtaking. Also, you quickly get caught up in them and lose your concentration or even find yourself in the middle of the road. So stay focused.
  5. These passes are at a high altitude (> 2000m), so it can be cool or even downright cold at the top. Also, dress accordingly.

Also remember to read our article on the road-trip essentials (here), in order to have all the necessary equipment to tackle this day well equipped.

That having been said, let’s go for a ride!

Note that you can do the loop in both directions. But we prefer the following: Susten – Furka – Grimsel.

Leg 1 : Meiringen – Susten

The itinerary is quite simple and it’s hard to lose track. Just follow the signs. First follow Innertkirchen then Susten pass (approx. 50km, 1 hour).

Take the opportunity to stop to observe the panoramic view all the way up.

The way up towards the Susten pass. What a view my friends… 

Once at the top, and as you wish, you will find an altitude bistro. But this will be canteen food, so don’t expect a fine dining experience. But when the biker is hungry, it is better to put something on his plate. But if you can wait, we recommend that you wait for Andermatt, where you will find more options.

Leg 2 : Susten – Andermatt – Furka

Once at the top, the road continues towards the Furkapass. Follow Wassen then Andermatt then Furka Pass (approx. 16km, 21min). Unless you make a stop in Andermatt to perk up the bike and his/her pilot.

The view from the top of the Furka pass, towards the Grimsel pass. 

Leg 3 : Furka -Grimsel

Arrived at the top of the Furka, and after observing the panoramic view, you can continue for the next part: Furka – Grimsel (approx. 16 km, 20 min).

The beasts from Hinckley deserve a break!

At the top of Grimsel, take a well-deserved stop for a coffee and enjoy the terrace with the lake view.

Then on your way back down, don’t forget to take a look at the Grimsel Hospiz, where you can find, if you feel like it, a refuge for the night. But since this is a 4 * hotel, don’t expect low prices.

Otherwise, all you have to do is return to the starting point, in Meiringen (35min, 32km), then continue your journey either towards Lucerne, or towards Interlaken, Bern, etc.

We hope you will fully enjoy the beauty of these alpine landscapes and have fun on the road!
