Devil's Bridge, a metaphor of danger to putting up and passing though, crosses the falls of the Reuss, in Andermatt. The Reuss is a river in Switzerland. With a length of 158 kilometres and a drainage basin of 3,425 square kilometres, it is the fourth largest river in Switzerland (after Rhine, Aar and Rhone). Rising in the Gotthard massif, the Reuss runs from the Urserental and continues through the Schöllenen Gorge and under the legendary Devil's Bridge (Teufelsbrücke) at St. Gotthard Pass.
