St. Gotthard Pass

Mountain Pass

CH |

Public | Dutch

Did you know that the St. Gotthard Pass was locally known in antiquity, but that it was not generally used until the early 13th century because it involved fording the turbulent Reuss, swollen with snowmelt during the early summer, in the narrow steep-sided Schöllenen Gorge (the Schöllenenschlucht), below Andermatt. As early as 1236, it was dedicated to the Bavarian Saint Gotthard of Hildesheim.
