    These figures show that the Grimsel is a real classic: The Grimsel Pass has already been part of the Tour de Suisse ten times: in 1937, 1953, 1956, 1962, 1973, 1986, 1996, 2002, 2007 and 2011. The destination was er 2007. The Grimsel is also the eighth highest pass that has ever been part of the Tour de Swiss.

    But that doesn't mean that only professionals can beat it. Especially from the south (Ulrichen) it never becomes a hell of a lot and amateurs still get the high alpine feeling they long for.

    On weekdays or Sunday mornings go very early to avoid traffic.

    If possible during the week, on the weekend unbearable motorcycle traffic!

    From Gletsch very nice to drive and only moderate traffic. That was fun, even if we are sunk in the clouds.

    Nice steady rise. Good for GA1 or intervals. Almost perfect asphalt, unfortunately correspondingly increased traffic.

    Around 1500 from Innertkirchen uphill through the Haslital: the journey to the Grimsel Pass through a landscape carved by the glaciers of the Ice Age is and remains a "classic".

    The Grimselpass is a great climb if you choose the right moment to climb it. Avoid week ends and summer holidays where the traffic is obnoxious. It is best climbed in June or in the second half of September. Otherwise, do it early in the morning to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the silence

    Nice big hairpin bends with a good surface! The road is also very wide, so there are no problems with cars overtaking. Of course the view is breathtaking. You can see the Furka pass nicely.
