Klausen PassSwiss Alpine roads not only lead to some of the most exhilarating outdoor adventures in the world, their hairpin turns and perfectly maintained surfaces allow for a James Bond-type thrill of their own. The Klausen Pass provides such joys along with sweeping views of majestic mountains. Drivers should start from Glarus Süd to reach the pass, whose 6,391-foot elevation and winding route would make even 007 purr. Keep an eye out along the way for quaint cheese factories and herds of cows, rattling with Swiss bells.
