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