Klausen Pass (Klausenpass in German) is placed in the Swiss Alps at an elevation of 1,948 m (6,391ft.) above sea level. This great mountain pass is a 46 kilometer paved road that links the canton of Uri with the canton of Glarus and is also the entry point to Alp passes that surround Furka, Susten, Grimsel and Oberalp. Klausen pass is a renowned route among motorcyclists and bikers due to it forming part of Alpine Pass Route, a long distance hiking trail across Switzerland. Those driving this route won’t find this road to be in the best of conditions, but despite the numerous potholes and areas of glaciation - this pass is a scenic marvel of zigzagging pathways that wind up through woodlands, beautiful Alpine valleys and abundant serpentines. A souvenir shop, restroom and snack bar can found at the top of the pass and magnificent picturesque view can be enjoyed on the descent into the Schaechen Valley. The Klausen pass is accessible from May-October.
