«Just great: My favorite tour, with 15 unique alpine passes and a natural spectacle that stretches from the east to the west of Switzerland.»

Susanne - Our Switzerland expert

Day 1

Individual arrival in Davos. Davos can boast superlatives: the vacation resort with international ambience is the highest town in the Alps at 1560 m and a high-altitude health resort with a long tradition. An ideal place for pass tours in Graubünden. Overnight stay in Davos.

Highlights: Schatzalp - the magic mountain, Monstein Brewery, Kirchner Museum.

The Susten-Grimsel-Gotthard-Nufenenpass route promises pure Alpine romance. 8000 meters of altitude are overcome, in addition with unique views of glaciers, deep gorges and romantic villages as in the Upper Valais.

Day 5

Brig - Lötschberg tunnel - Simmental - Jauenpass - Gruyère - Gstaad - Col de Pillon - Lake Geneva - Montreux (driving time approx. 5 hours / 220 km).

The car transport at the Lötschberg connects the Valais with the Bernese Oberland. Upstream in the Simmental, a branch leads to the Jaun Pass. The place names change here from German to French. A moment ago, mountain forests, wild waters, picturesque mountain villages and after the Col de Pillon, voilà: palm trees and southern flair - Lake Geneva can't be far away.

Overnight in the Montreux region.

Highlights: Gruyères - world famous for its cheese, Gstaad - with its traditional chalets, Glacier 3000 - the alpine viewing experience.
