Stories, information and comments from Ruppenpass climbers
Story by Chris Patient from , Switzerland, submitted on 01/07/2017 16:35:48
I climbed the Ruppen pass by bike as part of a tour with Bike Switzerland whom I highly recommend. Starting from Altstatten we set a medium pace just managing to stay ahead of an elderly swiss couple on electric bikes. We enjoyed the views out over the Rhine valley and into Austria and the easy gradient as well as the relatively quiet road. There is no pass sign at the top but we, as most people do, turned left at Landmark where there is a rustic cafe and went on to a highpoint called St Anton on the top of the ridge. From here we enjoyed spectacular views and a welcome cup of coffee before making our way down to Bodensee. The are many alternate routes and the whole area is a paradise for cycling.
