Gerlitzenpass-Gerlitzen Alpe Panoramastraße

Gerlitzen Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.909m (6,263 ft) above the sea level, located on the north shore of Lake Ossiach in the heart of Carinthia, Austria.

The road to the pass is called Gerlitzen Gipfelstraße. Enjoy the breathtaking view of central Carinthia while driving along the Gerlitzen Alpine Road. The last part of the road is gravel. Starting from the north shore of Lake Ossiach, it’s a well-developed scenic road, the 12 km toll road (gradient of 10 - 13 %; width 5 m) leads from Bodensdorf at Lake Ossiach up to the panorama car.
