That's it.
Hope you liked my pictures, and that I didn't spam the thread to hard.
It was hard to make selections, I was very impressed by the beauty on the roads, and I didn't even explore that much of the country.

Vignette-evader

Our friend where we stayed in Wil told us, that until Eastern, the weather was fine and sunny. On Sunday it got more cold, and even snowed in the morning. A few hours later, sun was shining and most of the snow was gone, but it still was coldish.

I'm happy you liked them.
You can find all my pictures in my Flickr albums, although I think I posted what was enough (if not maybe to much ).
I found every Swiss road I was on, very good, with good markings and indications.
The 80kmh speed limit was maybe a little slow, but helped admiring the beautiful landscapes more. Only on one road I saw 100kmh limit, but was a little surprised, because it was a little curvy, other 80kmh roads would have been 100kmh in Germany for sure.
Anyway, I liked it very much, the only downside would be high prices, but we didn't spend much. Will certainly return in Summer .

Pics from north to south.





















I know this is an old post but need some advice regarding Bernina Pass. The route: St Moritz-Tirano-Bormio-Stelvio

or

St Moritz- Ospizio Bernina- Livingno-Stelvio Pass ?

Is the 2nd one better or not ? Was there back in 2006 but this summer would like to spice up a bit . Any tips ?
Thanks

How do you plan to go from Livigno to the Stelvio Pass? You still have 2 further options:

- via Bormio (nice road)
- via tunnel and Munt Valley and Passo Umbrail.

The 2nd option is very scenic, the road pass there is fun (and empty), but it takes longer... and you miss the approach to Stelvio from Bormio which is incredibly nice in my opinion.

So I'd go via Livigno anyway.,

I'd choose the second one. First one is not so scenic, you have to go through Tirano and some other towns before reaching a very long tunnel (8 km) which ends in Bormio. So you basically see nothing.

I have 2 more questions:
1. A13/E43 Albula Exit -Bivio- St Moritz
Or
A13/E43 Albula Exit - Preda- St Moritz ?

Which route is better? Scenic/time. I know roads are great.

2. Stelvio Pass- Cortina D'Ampezzo - Kranjska Gora ( Slovenia ). Whic route is the best? Again: scenic/time.

I'd appreciate if is there anything along these routes as MUST SEE .

I can't confirm, but the combined A1/A2 section near Rothrist is horrible as well. Having said that: all other roads I've driven so far in Switzerland seem to have very decent asphalt.

what kind of a vehicle will you use?i drive a motorcycle and i know all those roads prety well.the albula pass is the more beautiful one no doubt about it but it isnt open the whole year over.if you drive it make a stop before you reach la punt chamues,about 2-3km before,a great view on the whole valley

the second question : stelvio - passo gavia - passo tonale - passo mendola(make a short cut up to the penegal tower,phantastic view) - bolzano - passo carezza - canazei - passo fedaia - passo giau - cortina d ampezzo - passo tre croci - auronzo di cadore - cima sappada - comeglians - monte zoncolan - paluzza - forcella lius - paularo - passo del cason di lanza - pontebba - sella cereschiatis - resiutta - sella carnizza - bovec - vršič - kranjska gora

Thanks Zagor. Much appreciated. Saved that as viewing point near Albula Pass. I think it'll be open in July.
The car I'll be driving ?! MB for life

That part will be enhanced to 3+3 so they probably only do what is needed till then.
At least the other stretch of the A1 with bad quality (Lenzburg - Birr) is being refurbished now.

I'd say definitely via Bozen (Via Jaufenpass takes quite long and the Pustertal you'd go through afterwards isn't that scenic at all). You don't have any real options till there.
Then:
- either through Val Gardena to Falzarego (either via Corvara (faster) or Arabba (another pass road. The option via Passo Giau takes much longer, I suppose.
- or to Klausen, across the small Würzjoch road to San Martino in Badia and to Falzarego.
The second option should take some more time, but it is imo way more interesting (its basically a single lane road). Don't miss the stop at the church at St. Magdalenen, it's one of the most famous motives of the whole of Southern Tyrol.

Today it snowed in the Leventina and Mesolcina valleys, A2 and A13 respectively: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IgS5vJQXho

The trucks were forbidden to cross the Alps for some time.

It's curious that in Grono, near the lower end of Mesolcina valley, in 2003 the temperature reached 42°C/107°F, the highest ever recorded in Switzerland.
