Restaurant Piz Calmot  

Gasthaus Piz Calmot

Please enjoy the challenge of spotting the difference between these two pictures of an attractive Swiss high Alp gasthaus. The hotel and restaurant known as Piz Calmot is situated at the Oberalppass. This is the pass that links the Swiss cantons of Uri and Grisons, enabling road travel between Andermatt and Disentis. The pass is at 2044 m (6706 ft); the gasthaus offers accommodation in 49 rooms and the restaurant provides European and local dishes. Inevitably such a high pass is closed in winter, but it is possible to take a car on the shuttle train on the Furka-Oberalp railway. It is difficult to predict when the road is closed, because it depends on the snow: it could be as early as the end of October, and it might not open again until the middle of May, though it could be open by the end of April. To be on the safe side, book in advance if you want to take your car on the train.
