General information

Alpen Region Brienz Meiringen Hasliberg
The town of Meiringen is a good starting point for a tour of the Susten, Furka, and Grimsel passes. Local attractions include the Aare Gorge, Upper Reichenbach Falls, and Sherlock Holmes Museum.

If you're traveling toward Meiringen, Andermatt is a good place to spend the night before heading over the pass. (This article is geared to skiers, but the many of the links are relevant at any time of year.)

Everything you need to know if your motto is "Skip the bus and leave the driving to us."


Bicycling in Switzerland
