The part between Göschenen and Andermatt is well worth it, because of the famous "Schöllenen Gorge" and the "Teufelsbrücke". Although I continued up the Gotthard, I did climb the Oberalp from Andermatt on the return. Nice section out of the city, some great - wide open - views during the fairly straight road up to the tunnel along the Oberalp lake. It is busy, but the lack of hairpins make this less of a problem than from Disentis.

Great climb! From the beautiful cycle path on and along the Gotthardstrasse, the surroundings can be enjoyed. The first 4 kilometres up to the Teufelsbrücke are quite tough. There are quite a few steep sections of over 10% metres. After the bridge, you can recover for a while until Andermatt. From the roundabout in the centre of Andermatt, you'll get about 7 kilometres of not too difficult climbing. Don't forget to enjoy the panorama over Andermatt. The last 3 kilometres you can speed up to the top of the pass at the lighthouse.

Geweldige klim! Vanaf het prachtige fietspad op en naast de Gotthardstrasse is het genieten van de omgeving. De eerste 4 kilometer tot de Teufelsbrücke liegen er niet om. Daar zitten de nodige steile stukken in van ruim 10%. Na de brug kan je even herstellen tot in Andermatt. Vanaf de rotonde in het centrum van Andermatt krijg je zo'n 7 kilometer niet al te moeilijk klimwerk voor de kiezen. Vergeet vooral niet te genieten van het panorama over Andermatt. De laatste 3 kilometer kan je nog even gas geven tot de top van de pas bij de vuurtoren.

I have only cycled the part from Andermatt. Beautiful surroundings, but from there on there are many more beautiful cols to explore in the area.

Zelf heb ik enkel het deel vanuit Andermatt gefietst. Schitterende omgeving, maar vanaf die plaats zijn er veel mooiere cols in de omgeving te verkennen.

Cycled this beautiful climb in 2019.
Especially a big compliment for the road engineers who in the first part to Andermatt also took into account the cyclists and still let you cycle exclusively on the tourist topper.
I wish it was like that everywhere.
Climbing out above Andermatt is panoramically beautiful.

Deze mooie klim gefietst in 2019.
Vooral een dikke pluim voor de wegeningenieurs die in het eerste deel tot Andermatt ook rekening hielden met de fietsers en je daarbij nog exclusief over de toeristische topper laten fietsen.
Was dit overal maar zo.
Het uitklimmen boven Andermatt is panoramisch prachtig.
