the world's most spectacular roads

 

Kühtai Saddle is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2,017 m (6,617 ft) above the sea level, located in the Austrian Alps in the Bundesland of Tyrol.

The asphalted road over the pass connects the Ötz river valley from Oetz with Gries im Sellrain. At just about 2,000 metres above sea level, the Kühtai Saddle is an absolute must for road bikers in Tirol. Steep sections make it a real challenge.

  

There are 2 routes to reach the summit. Starting from Oetz, the road is 16 km and has a maximum grade of 16 percent. This side is closed to trucking. And starting from from Gries im Sellrain, the road is 17 km long. It has a maximum grade of 16 percent.
