Highlights along the route



A popular hiking region in summer, a varied cross-country skiing paradise in winter: This upper most valley of the Rhone River features traditional timbered dwellings raised on wooden piles. It enjoys a spectacular setting amid 3,000-metre peaks and the eternal ice of the Rhone Glacier. The tranquil Niederwald was the birthplace of the legendary César Ritz (1850-1918) the peasant’s son who founded the renowned Ritz-Carlton Hotels. He is buried in the village of Niederwald.



Andermatt is located at the foot of the 2,033-metre Oberalp Pass in the canton of Uri, along the 144-kilometre network of the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. From here trains depart for Disentis, Göschenen and Zermatt. Due to the already partly opened new tourism resort Andermatt Swiss Alps, Andermatt is developing into an attractive year-round vacation destination.
