San Gotthard-Pass
take the tunnel or
drive the old passroad
When you listen to the radio you will always get the information that the tunnel at Gotthard has a waiting-time of 30 minutes or even some hours and then it might make sense to take the old passroad over the Gotthard, because there is almost no cartrafic at all, the road is perfect, not trucks going there and only a very few buses and the scenery is simply wonderful. There is a small lake on top of the pass, a hotel and restaurant and even a museum about trafic over the passroad. The alpine-fortress of the swiss army is another great sight there !
