Oberalpsee

Description

The pass is located at 2044 m above sea level.M in the municipality of Tujetsch. Immediately west of the pass is the slightly dammed Oberalpsee. 

The Oberalp Pass traffic leading through the Tujetsch was never very important. Today's road over the Oberalp Pass was built in the years 1862-1863. In 1911, the construction of the Furka-Oberalp Railway began, which was interrupted by the war, so that the train service was not started until 1926.

The main road, which leads over the top of the pass, is closed in winter, but a limited number of vehicles can be transported between Andermatt and Sedrun by car transport during this time. The opening hours of the pass vary depending on snow conditions from mid-April to the beginning of December

Since October 2010, a red lighthouse has stood at the top of the pass, a miniature replica of the 14-metre-high tower that stood for 70 years in Hoek van Holland at the mouth of the Rhine.
