Must knows about scenic drives

  • The best time for scenic drives in Switzerland is June to September. Many pass roads are closed in winter;
  • Pass roads require special driving skills. You can learn about the basics here, and about Swiss traffic regulations here;
  • We highly recommend taking plenty of breaks along the way. That's the best way to enjoy the views;
  • Swiss rental cars have a motorway vignette, which allows you to drive on the motorways. For the best scenery you'd better skip the motorways though;
  • Responsible travelers compensate for the CO2 emission of their trip. That way you can enjoy the Alps without contributing to climate change;
  • There are many scenic train and boat trips in Switzerland too.
