Folks..... A quick one!
Does anyone know the date of Switzerland's Alpenbrevet in 2019
The website says (I think- as its in German) that the date will be confirmed later : When will the date be confirmed?

Thank you in advance

Alpenbrevet usually takes place in last week of August.
You can start your hill training now :)

I did it in 2017, very well organised and an amazing route. I did the 172km route (Grimsel, Nufenen, Gotthard, Susten). I am thinking of doing it again in 2019 followed by the Otztal (if they are on consecutive weekends).

I also notice that the Gold route for 2018 started in Andermatt, and the route went in the order; Sustran, Grimsel, Nufenen & Gotthard.
Is this a change from previous years? Will tjis be the case for 2019?

No the date is not yet confirmed.
They changed the starting point last year and I think it will be Andermatt too for the oncoming years.

Thank you for the replies - my (reliable) sources tell me that the date is 24 August 2019 and the routes are the same as 2018.
Any comments on this.
The moment that I get creditible confirmation I will book flights, entry, hotel, time off work......
