Location of Pyhrn Pass
|Elevation||954 m (3,130 ft)|
|Traversed by||Federal Highway B 138|
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.
Because the pass is a relatively low one, it has been important regionally since the Stone Age.
