This is one of the most beautiful street passes in europe. The streets are perfect. A lot of tourists are here every day. Even if it is a workday. Unbeliable how near the other passes are here and how deep the holes are.

One for bucket list of any petrol head in the world. Drive from either Interlaken/Andermatt, miles after miles the road unravels its beauty. The list of things are endless to see. We saw total time to reach Furka Pass 1hr 30 minutes in GPS, and ended up spending 5 hours overall(not that it was even enough). Just can't resist stopping... More

Furka Pass is an almost 40km road that probably reaches more than 3000m altitude and offers amazing views. I recommend to drive a very fast car over those curves like we did, unforgettable!

We have driven the Furka Pass a few times now and each time has been great. Going up the first set of switchbacks from the bottom of the Grimsel Pass gives you a great view of the Grimsel and down the valley. Then you reach the Rhone Glacier. This is the start of the mighty Rhone river and the head... More

This was one of many passes we drove on during a two week road trip across the Alps. It was fun to drive, not too busy and beautifully smooth roads. Ideal for cyclists, motor bikes and cars. Some great driving to be had here and worth a visit.

As a life long James Bond fan it was too good a chance to miss to drive the famous Switchback mountain road used in Goldfinger. The hairpins and great views were a must! We approached from the opposite side of the mountain, via the Grimsel Pass, which some reviews said was actually a better drive. We climbed ever upwards unbelievably... More

Sensational, stunning scenery! At times I felt I was on a fairground ride of hairpin bends and high altitudes looking down close to the edge, but it is a very good road and has to be some of the most scenic views we have ever had. A bonus which we did not even know about was the Ice Grotto which... More

I was on the road in Switzerland and because of jam the navi suggested to take the way of Furka pass. I was not sure but at the end I decided to do so. A lucky decision! One of the best panoramic view I remember in the last years. All the road is really to be enjoyed! Not important if... More

When we decided to visit Switzerland I researched roads to drive. Furka Pass was the one I decided we had to drive. What a wonderful road. With the top of the convertible down we experienced views that I will never forget. I want to go back
