  • A rise of + 1000 m from Ulrichen, a beautiful drive and stunning landscapes. In short what it takes to have fun on a motorcycle but also by car. A route to make at least once.

  • This Hill is the tallest in Switzerland between those whose slopes belong entirely to the Swiss Confederation. Nothing special in itself, nor for the climb from the Valais and Ticino, neither for the view: some giants of the Bernese, while visible, they are away. But Airolo, Ticino's side, is the starting point of the sympathetic way to this Hill, which from the North, Valais can be reached from Ulrichen with beautiful wooden houses. Hill easily accessible for those along the stretch from Brig to Gletch, point of departure for the tour of the three hills obligated. The Nufenen has reached almost quickly from Ulrichen and at the highest point has few facilities for refreshment and a minilaghetto. In the case of Hill but highly recommended stop in Ulrichen.
