This end is almost boring compared to the old Tremola from Airolo. You can/should take the cobbled road finish - the last 3 to 4 kms - although the easier road is to stay on the "highway". BTW: you should start in Göschenen, to get a view on the Teufelsbrücke - that part is amazing. The... read more

Apparently it has to be approached from the other side, via Tremole. However, even from Andermatt it has its charm. 3 km before the summit, the road becomes completely empty and you ride on paving stones. The Tremol descent is also exciting. I recommend

Podobno trzeba podjezdzac ja z drugiej strony, przez Tremole. Jednak i z Andermatt ma swoj urok. 3km przed szczytem droga robi sie zupelnie pusta, jedzie sie wtedy po kostce. Zjazd Tremola tez dostarcza emocji. Polecam

Coming from the Furka on 30/08/2019 at the roundabout in Hospental I cycled up the Gotthardpass.
Despite the car tunnel, quite busy wide road that winds up slightly twisting without extreme gradients into a wide valley with 2 hairpin bends to continue on a higher level on the mountainside.
The exit of the main road (as shown on the climbfinder map) to the old Tremola cobblestone route is, contrary to the other side, NOT mandatory for cyclists.
Remarkable because you cycle the last 3 km. almost traffic free, in "light Paris-Roubaix" style, on fairly straight ascending road with occasional faint bends along several lakes to end up at the large Lago della Piazza at the touristically busy pass height (catering industry).
On the Tremola I encountered the old stagecoach from Andermatt that in a distant past provided a connection over the pass.
It absolutely cannot compete with the unique climb from Airolo but on the Furka/Gotthard/Nufenen (clockwise) it is unavoidable.

Komende van de Furka op 30/08/2019 ter hoogte van de rotonde in Hospental de Gotthardpas op gefietst.
Ondanks de autotunnel, vrij drukke brede weg die zich licht draaiend zonder extreme stijgingspercentages naar omhoog slingert in een breed dal met 2 haarspeldbochten om op een hoger niveau op de bergflank verder te gaan.
De afslag van de grote weg (zoals op de climbfinder kaart) naar de oude Tremola kasseiroute is in tegenstelling tot de andere zijde NIET verplicht voor fietsers.
Opmerkelijk want je fietst dan de laatste 3 km. bijna verkeersvrij, in "light Parijs-Roubaix" stijl, op vrij rechte klimmende weg met af en toe flauwe bochten langs verschillende meertjes om uit te komen aan het grote Lago della Piazza ter hoogte van de toeristisch drukke pashoogte.(horeca).
Ik kwam op de Tremola de oude postkoets tegen uit Andermatt die in een ver verleden zorgde voor een verbinding over de pas.
Kan absoluut niet wedijveren met de unieke klim vanuit Airolo maar op de fietsronde Furka/Gotthard/Nufenen (wijzerszin) is hij niet te mijden.
