Coming from Italy, the Russians crossed the Ticino border at Ponte Tresa, over Monte Ceneri, through the Leventina and over the Gotthard Pass, then on to Ursern and through the Reuss valley to Altdorf. The French resistance on the Lake of Uri and in the Glarus lowlands forced Suworow to make bypass marches over the Chinzig Chulm and Pragel passes and finally to retreat through the Sernftal and over the Panixer Pass into the Surselva. Suvorov memorial sites on the Gotthard and in the Schöllenen recall these dramatic events, as do the general's quarters in listed buildings such as the Muotathal Monastery or the Suvorov House in Elm. In addition to the historic sites along the route, the unique natural setting is also impressive. Wild mountain valleys, pass landscapes, mountain lakes and rivers can be enjoyed without worries - especially at the thought of Suworow's troops who had to make their way under time pressure, enemy attacks and the onset of winter.
