    The Sustenpass on the main road 11 connects the canton of Uri with the canton of Bern. The pass road is 45 km long and is one of the newer in the Swiss Alps. It was built between 1938 and 1945. Because it mainly serves tourism, it is usually only open from June to October. The road begins in Wassen on the northern ramp of the Gotthard Pass and leads through the lying in Meiental villages Meien and Färnigen with a maximum of 9 percent slope. The pass is underpassed at 2224 m in a crest tunnel. At the west ramp in the Bernese Oberland, the descent with 9 percent on the stone glacier passes by the places Gadmen and Nessental in Gadmertal.

    The Sustenpass is a must. Great in combination with Furka and Grimselpass.

    Susten, Furka and Grimsel are a recommended combination of alpine passes, which you can do in one day.
