The Schöllenen Gorge leads from Göschenen to Andermatt in the Gotthard region. It is worth stopping between the steep rock faces and feeling the myth of the Gotthard at close quarters.
Anyone wishing to experience the scariness of the Schöllenen Gorge should embark on a walk along the Schöllenen circular trail during the summer months. It is easy to walk on and will take 30 minutes at the most, walking at a leisurely pace. The vertical cliff walls and the roaring river Reuss are fascinating to look at. The Teufelsbrücke Restaurant is located directly at the bridge of the same name. During the summer, visitors will find out more about the legend associated with the crossing of the Schöllenen Gorge.
Safety note The circular trail is not accessible to pedestrians in winter (November to about May).
