With a summit at 1,894 meters, Hahntennjoch is a high mountain pass that connects the upper valley of Inn River with Lechtal Valley during the summer months. The high Alpine road leads across remote Bschlabertal and is a scenic drive that is particularly popular with motorcyclists and cyclists.
Along 29 meandering kilometers and grades up to 18.9 percent, you can catch views of glacier-carved valleys, daunting peak summits and densely wooded areas. The road across Hahntennjoch Pass has two different faces: Coming from Imst, you’ll drive past barren rock, scree and scrub. As the road nears the top, the scenery turns more and more picturesque and lovely and crosses lovely Bschlabs Valley that retains a wild, rugged natural beauty on its way down into Lechtal Valley. Bschlabs, Boden and Pfafflar are not words that come easily off the tongue, but in these tiny hamlets of Bschlabertal Valley the wow factor far exceeds the “ow” factor; gorgeous scenery awaits in this remote wilderness and the three chocolate-box villages have friendly roadside eateries. The pass road is normally open from late May through October. The road section between Boden and Imst is generally closed in the winter.
