the world's most spectacular roads


The Fern Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.212m (3,976ft) above the sea level, located in the Tyrolean Alps in Austria.

The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called Fernpass Straße (B 179). This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The first regular road crossing the Fern Pass was the Roman Via Claudia Augusta, connecting the province of Raetia to northern Italy. The steepest gradient is 8 percent, and the elevation gain from Reutte to the pass is 359 m. On the other side to Telfs, the elevation gain is 579 m.
