The Lötschen Pass (el. 2690 m.) (German: Lötschenpass, also Lötschberg) is a high mountain pass in Switzerland across the Lötschberg, connecting Kandersteg in the canton of Berne and Ferden in the canton of Valais.

There is no actual mountain called Lötschberg. The pass lies between the Balmhorn on the west and Hockenhorn on the east. The pass is not accessible for cars, but traffic goes through the Lötschberg Tunnel via railway.
