Pragelpass

The Pragelpass lives from its eventful history, but also from its beauty between the two different worlds of the cantons Schwyz and Glarus. A very scenic and amazing motorcycletour with the Schwammhöchi  with it’s restaurant with an absolute amazing view over the Kloentalersee as an atmospheric finale.

The Pragelpass (el. 1550 m.) links two cantons with very different characteristics. On one hand Schwyz and on the other hand Glarus between Muotathal and Netstal. The pass itself is located in the canton of Schwyz.

On one side Canton Schwyz , known as a rather egocentric and tradition-based canton, on the other the more cosmopolitan Glarus. This is probably why the road over the Pragelpass has never really been developed despite its strategic significance, particularly during World War II.

 

The pass road of the Pragelpass is parallel to the road over Klausen Pass and has a maximum grade of 18 percent. The east side of the pass road is closed to motorized vehicles on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Pragelpass normally is one of the 130 passroads of the Swiss Passroadchallenge.

Pretty soon I will publish a tour where you can explore Switzerland on it’s Grand Tour of Switzerland and where you can also take part of the Swiss Passroadchallenge and win a Bronce-medal. I will be able to make the tour by yourself as a selfguided-tour or you can also book in one of the groups I am going to guide.
