Sustenpass is a convenient way of enjoying dynamic of Swiss passes. There are no such a big traffic or steepy sections. It is enjoyable to drive along and stop at the top for photos or enjoying some drinks in the restaurant. Highly recommended trip.

This is a truly beautiful pass, it is a must do. The views are stunning and the glacier tongue goes down to a lake and this is but one of its attractions.

We did the Susten pass twice. The first time it was foggy and 32 degrees and snowing. They had the plow trucks on stand by and it was very scarey as the switch backs had little to stop you from going off the cliff. The...More

When touring Switzerland with a car or motorcycle you can't miss Sustenpass. It's just a must visit place. Not the highest, not the most famous, but surely one of the most beautiful ones. Plus the bends are not too sharp so you can move at...More

Amazing pass with a mix of everything; mini tunnels, waterfall, lake, glacier, clouds above and below, etc. You can either take a Postbus or drive by car. Driving by car has a great advantage of having stopped anywhere you like to take pictures and enjoy...More
