Bike Touring Highlight
At 2,046 meters you have reached the highest point of the pass. Even in summer, snow can still be here, so it is advisable to have appropriate clothing at hand. If you are still cold, you can warm up in one of the restaurants or overnight accommodations.
The Rheinquelleninformation Center can also be found up here, as the Rhine rises only three kilometers away. A hiking trail leads you to the spring, if you feel like making a detour.
There is also a train station on the Oberalp Pass. It lies on the railway line Andermatt-Disentis / Muster.
