About Pyhrn Pass

Pyhrn Pass is a mountain pass in the Austrian Alps between the Austrian states of Upper Austria and Styria. Since the middle of the 1980s, traffic on the pass has been reduced by the opening of the Bosruck Tunnel for the A9 Pyhrn Autobahn. There has also been a railway tunnel since the nineteenth century. Since the road tunnel was built, the road has not been cleared regularly in winter, and there is a weight limit for trucking.
