    The Jaufen Pass tour is always an experience. We recommend starting in Klausen, then Sterzing, Jaufen Pass, Merano, Bozen and back to Klausen. At 160 km you have everything you could want.

    Overall, a beautiful tour complete with everything and also the climb to the Giovo pass (Jaufen) is smooth and pleasant.

    from the north quite even slope. Always around the 7%. Scenic is the change from typical South Tyrol to high mountains. Early morning still very little traffic and pleasant to drive. On the descent to the south then about 24Km only downhill; as a reward for the trouble of cranking up :-)

    Near the Timmelsjoch is the Jaufenpass, which connects Sterzing with St. Leonhard. The driveway of Vipiteno is preferable because it is more scenic and the road meanders several times through dense forests.

    Pleasant, because relatively even to driving pass on the driveway of Vipiteno.

    Unfortunately, I only rode the `` Jaufen`` on my motorcycle - but it was not bad either.

    Coming from Sterzing very pleasant to drive.
    Most in the shade / forest.
    Very pleasant, even gradient of 6/7%, sometimes even more in peaks.
    You just have to be prepared that the Italians like to overtake a little more "tight".

    Classic Tyrol pass, can be a bit busy in sunny weekends with cars and motorbikes.
