The Susten–Furka–Grimsel Pass route starts at the Meiringen railway station and takes you on an afternoon journey across three spectacular mountain passes.

On the way to the Susten Pass, the postbus crosses no less than 25 bridges and passes through 25 tunnels. Another highlight to explore along the route is the famous Stone Glacier (PostBus stop Steingletscher, Susten).

The views of the Gotthard mountain range and the Urseren Valley from the top of the Furka Pass are breathtaking. From there, the mountain road continues past the Rhone Glacier and into the Valais region.

In Gletsch (PostBus stop Gletsch, Post) you then have to change transport to another postbus vehicle. And why not replenish resources with a delicious bite to eat at the Grand Hotel Glacier du Rhone before continuing your journey!

The Grimsel Pass road leads along many sparkling reservoir lakes with more marvelous views to enjoy (PostBus stop Grimsel Pass).

Important information:

Due to construction and renovation work, the Hotel Glacier-du-Rhône in Gletsch is currently closed. Catering options and toilet facilities are only available to a limited extent. For this reason, we recommend taking your own food and drink.
