Location of Staller Sattel

Staller Saddle (Italian: Passo Stalle; German: Staller Sattel) (el. 2052 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Alps on the border between the Tyrol in Austria and South Tyrol in Italy.

It connects the Defereggen valley in Tyrol with the Antholz valley in South Tyrol.

The pass is open only from May to October from 5:30 am to 22:00. The Italian side is very narrow, at points only one way, and prohibited for trailers and caravans.

Starting in 2007, a toll of 5 euros is planned for cars and motorcycles. The revenue will be split between Italy and Austria.
