The tunnel

Legendary transalpine route

Opened in 1964 after only 6 years of work, the Grand-Saint-Bernard tunnel is the link between Bourg-Saint-Pierre in Valais (Switzerland) and Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses (Italy). Every year, nearly 600,000 vehicles of tourism cross the Alps thanks to this road in the mountain.

6 km of road at 2000 m

When inaugurated on 19th March 1964, it was the first road traffic tunnel to be opened through the Alps. Construction work began on the Italian side in spring 1958, and soon later on the Swiss side. The tunnel was completed 6 years later.
