Description

Brace yourself for a day of big climbs and thrilling descents! Climb up out of Interkirchen in a northwesterly direction to Reuti.

From Reuti, descend via a steep path full of hairpin bends down to Meiringen.

Now you'll begin the most exciting part of the day’s ride: crossing the Große Scheidegg Pass.

The pass’s elevation is 1962m, crossing the col between the Bernese Alps’ Schwarzhorn and Wetterhorn mountains.

The scenery is exceptionally beautiful, making it one of the most popular mountain passes in Central Switzerland.

Descend along winding smooth tarmac, taking in the surrounding sheer rock face, and vibrant alpine meadows, until you come close to Grindelwald, where you end the day with a technical challenge as you have to switch onto hiking trails.
