Driving across St Gotthard’s Pass is an event of a lifetime. The gorgeous views are breathtaking. The bridges and tunnels are a feat of engineering!

It’s beautiful place and u can spend up to 2 -3 hrs and scenic beauty is very nice. Small lake and few restaurants and don’t forget to keep some change for using toilets at local restaurant cos it’s all paid.

Why would you drive many km through a dark tunnel when you can EASILY drive the St. Gotthard Pass?? This was the easiest of 5 passes we drove in Switzerland. We are at the top of the pass before we realized we were halfway through!...More

Did not take the tunnel but drove over the pass to have the view and it’s worth to do it! The drive is easy and the road just perfect. On the pass height you can enjoy some nice restaurants and activities!

If you are in no rush and are looking for knockout scenery, then that would be one of the routes I'd consider. The other is to go east out of Interlaken over to Wassen, then south to Andermatt and over Gotthard - the drive... More
