Provisional route 2024

From Wassen (930 m above sea level) you cross the famous Susten Pass (2,224 m above sea level) on the way to Innertkirchen. You climb the first 1,300 meters of altitude. Built during world war II, the pass road has an average gradient of 7.3 over a length of 18 kilometres. The maximum gradient is 9%. You will be rewarded with a 28 kilometre descent. During this you should relax and prepare for the Grimsel Pass.

After a first refreshment area, you head towards the Grimsel Pass (2,164 m above sea level). On a 26 kilometer long ascent and an average of 5.9 incline, you cycle towards your second pass height. The ascent to the south has a long history. The Grimsel Pass is a highly frequented connection to the south since the 14th century. Here, on the Grimsel Pass, rises the Aare, a river that flows into the sea via the Rhine. Arriving at the top, a technical descent follows before the highest Swiss pass road has to be conquered.

Before you tackle the ascent to the Nufenen Pass, you should have supplied yourself with enough energy at our refreshment post in Ulrichen. Now comes the hardest climb of the Platintour for most people. On a 13-kilometre-long road you climb 1,119 metres in altitude before you can enjoy the view of the Valais at 2,478 metres above sea level. This climb offers an average gradient of 8.6% – not for the faint-hearted! In contrast to the medieval pass over the Grimsel, the pass road over the Nufenen was not opened until 1964. This is the reason for the significantly higher average gradient. Once you reach the top, don’t forget to take a selfie. This is followed by a long (60 km!) descent via Airolo to Biasca!

During the 60 kilometer long descent you could hopefully recover sufficiently. Now follows the slightly easier climb to the Lukmanier Pass (1,915 m above sea level). Persevere, the goal in Andermatt is already within reach. The average 4 incline percentages and 1,613 meters of altitude are spread over 40 kilometers. After the penultimate intermediate destination, the rapid descent to Disentis follows, before the Oberalp Pass has to be driven.

Almost done! The Oberalppass stands in your way as the last hurdle of the platinum tour. After the last catering post in Disentis it is necessary to bite your teeth together one last time. With an average of 4.4 incline percentages, the slope here is also on the more pleasant side. The Oberalp pass is located at 2,044 metres above sea level and then leads on a 10 km long descent to the finish in Andermatt. Finished – great!
