The crossing of the pass between Pontresina and Poschiavo is particularly impressive when you take the Bernina Express. At 2,253 meters, this railway line, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the highest railway transversal in the Alps. Driving by car has the advantage that you can take a picture of the well-known Brusio circular viaduct just before the Italian border.
The Simplon Pass, which leads from Brig to Domodossola in the Italian region of Piedmont at an altitude of around 2,000 meters, is winter-safe. Although the pass road is officially one of the national roads, it can also be used by bike. Shortly before the border, it is worth visiting the Gondo Gorge.
The Susten connects the cantons of Uri and Bern. The pass road was built for military reasons and is mainly used for tourism today. When building during the war years 1939-46, great importance was attached to aesthetics. By hand, local materials were used to create an artisanal masterpiece. Driving in cloudy weather is particularly appealing when there are fewer cars and motorbikes and dark fir trees are mysteriously greeting from the fog.
