The internationally popular Swiss Cycling Alpenbrevet is a classic of cycling marathons in the Alps, is part of the Swiss Cycling Top Tour and is the largest grassroots cycling event in Switzerland. Every year 3000 riders take part, with about 40% coming from abroad. The Alpenbrevet is not a race but a tour and accordingly there is no ranking. At the end of the day everyone is a winner.


The Alpenbrevet is aimed at cycling enthusiasts from young to old and from all over the world, for whom not primarily the competition, but the experience and the mastering of a personal challenge is in the focus.

Nowhere else can you handle as many mountain passes and altitude metres in one day as at the Swiss Cycling Alpenbrevet. The Platintour offers the epic mountain passes Susten, Grimsel, Nufenen, Lukmanier and Oberalp and is strictly limited to 500 participants. If you don’t feel up to this challenge, you can switch to the shorter, but no less attractive gold, silver or bronze tour. The gold tour leads over four passes and the silver tour attracts, among other things, the historic Tremola at the Gotthard. The bronze tour starts in Ulrichen (Obergoms), leads over the Nufenen and Gotthard, and ends in Andermatt.
