Oberalp
Top of the pass

The pass connects Central Switzerland and Graubünden from Andermatt (Uri) to the Surselva Valley at an altitude of 2046 m. The red lighthouse is a reproduction of the lighthouse that stood for 70 years in Hoek van Holland (Netherlands) to mark the mouth of the Rhine. It is the Rheinquelle ("source of the Rhine") lighthouse and serves no purpose other than to surprise tourists.
