Beatenberg is an easy climb with very nice scenery. We did a nice trip starting and ending in Thun. Beatenberg affords great views of the Jungfrau Group (Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau). Beautiful: ****, steep ***

Grosse Scheidegg is great; it is steep, narrow and beautiful. You only have some Swiss Post busses trying to pass you, which is only possible if you step of your bike. On the way up, you have amazing views of the Eiger scenery. Beautiful: *****, steep *****

Furka Pass is great; we combined this pass with the Sustenpass and the Grimselpass which made it an unforgettable tour. In total we cycled 100km and 4000hm! Beautiful: ****, steep ****.

The Bruenig Pass is an easy and not so beautiful climb. It is a very busy road because it is a connection pass for Bernese Oberland and central Switzerland. We combined this pass with the Glaubenbielenpass Beautiful: ***, steep ***.

The Glaubenbielen Pass is nice but not spectacular. There is almost no traffic and the scenery is nice. The climb is pretty long and has view steep parts. Beautiful: ***, steep ****.

Belchen is in the Black Forrest. If you get up there with good weather, the view is stunning. You can see the Alps from Austria till France! Beautiful: *****, steep ***.

The Susten Pass is a very beautiful pass. Combine it with the Furkapass and the Grimselpass and you have an amazing day! Beautiful: ****, steep ****.

The Pragel Pass is hard, very hard indeed if you climbed Klausenpass before. It is steep, narrow and somehow very long. No traffic here, which makes it beautiful to cycle! Beautiful: ***, steep ***.

The Col du Pre is hard but beautiful. It is steep and narrow. No traffic here which makes it beautiful to cycle! We started in Albertville but form Beaufort it is 12.22 km long and 963 height meters of climbing with an average percentage of 7.9%. Beautiful: *****, steep *****.

The Col du Petit St. Bernard is beautiful. We cycled it in September and there was almost no traffic. The scenery is amazing and a must done. We started in Bourg Saint Maurice and cycled 31 km and 1373 height meters with an average percentage of 4.4%. Beautiful: *****, steep ****.   

Cormet de Roselend is a nice pass with beautiful scenery. Combining it with Col du Pre makes it an interesting day trip! If you start from the other side Bourg Saint Maurice, you will cycle 19.35km and 1154 height meters with an average percentage of 6%. Beautiful: ****, steep ****.

This is not the real Col de la Madeleine. There are more Madeleines in the Alps. Beautiful: **, steep **.
