The Jaufen Pass mountain pass connects the Passeiertal valley with the Valle Isarco/Eisacktal valley, and is one of the shortest connections between Merano/Meran and Vipiteno/Sterzing by the Brenner Pass mountain pass.
The starting point for this racing bike tour is San Leonardo in Val Passiria/St. Leonhard im Passeier. With many switchbacks you climb the mountain with a gradient of approx. 12%. At Valtina/Walten the road bends towards the pass, providing a wonderful view from many sides, rewarding your strenuous pedaling. Descend either towards Casateia/Gasteig or back into the Passeiertal valley the way you came up.

Turn-by-turn directions

Ausgangspunkt dieser Rennradtour ist St. Leonhard im Passeier, in mehreren Serpentinen klettert man den Berg hoch, bei einer Steigung von ca. 12%. Bei Walten knickt die Straße zum Pass hinab - mit einer wundervollen Aussicht nach mehreren Seiten wird das anstrengende Treten belohnt. Die Abfahrt erfolgt entweder Richtung Gasteig am Benner oder zurück ins Passeiertal entlang der Aufstiegsstrecke.
