    From Andermatt take direction Oberalp Pass and enjoy the fantastic landscape around you.

    Green mountains and lot of local houses all over the mountains.
    Then once on the mountain pass, enjoy the fresh air.

    Favorite thing: It is always better to be informed about road conditions.
    So for this reason here's a website that wil tell you every Swiss tunnel and mountain pass status, open or closed.
