19 / Furkapass : Gletsch - Realp

The spectacular and fun Furkapass, that was once used in the Bond Film Goldfinger. Silly amounts of nice corners executed with Swiss accuracy!

L154 : Albbruck - St. Blasien (Albtal)

Baden-Württemberg > Germany > Europe
September 29, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.4

Die Strasse um die es sich handelt kann in diesem Bild leider nicht gesehen werden. Einfach von Albbruck aus der Beschilderung "Albtal" folgen. Es handelt sich um ein wild romantisches Tal das von einer engen, kurvenreichen Strasse begleitet wird. Gleich am Anfang stehen 5 Tunnels von denen 3 sehr unübersichtlich um die Ecke gehen (hier empfielt es sich den Gegenverkehr durch kurzes Hupen zu warnen). Sehr empfehlenswert sind auch Abstecher von dieser Strasse aus in Richtung Hotzenwald. Man kann praktisch überall abbiegen und wird sich auf einer traumhaften Strecke für Motorradfahrer wiederfinden. Ideal für Fahrten in's Blaue.


Pragelpass : Hinterthal - Glarus ( Emerald Lakes and Waterfalls )

Switzerland > Switzerland > Europe
February 5, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.7

This route runs approximately parallel and to the north of the Klausenpass. It would be a nice return trip back to Glarus or Schwyz if you took the Klausenpass one direction and this trip in the opposite direction. This is a very narrow road in the section through the mountains. To get to the beginning of this road, take the Bahnhofstrasse east out of Schwyz, left on Scheidgasse, right on Strehlgasse, then the road turns in a U-turn and becomes Grundstrasse. If you follow Grundstrasse for about 10 km, you find it turns into Kustnau, and then Hauptstrasse as it enters Hinterthal. At the east end of Hinterthal, jump over the bridge onto Pragelstrasse, and follow this road for about 30 km. At some points, this road goes down to one lane, and I have heard that the pass closes on the weekend except to bicycles and foot traffic. HOWEVER. If you can manage to navigate this road, there is a spectacular lake called the Klontalersee towards the Glarus end of the route. It is an amazing emerald green color with several spectacular falls. At the east end of the lake turn left onto Klontalstasse, or go straight on around the lake. Both roads dump you back down the hill into Glarus. This sia very pleasant ride, best accomplished before dusk and on a sunny day. I have posted photos on my travel log... www.travel-switzerland.net. I did not see any police when I rode this trip, but I recommend caution, as it can be very narrow inplaces with blind turns. Enjoy!
