Pyhrn Pass(el. 954 m) is a high mountain passin the Austrian Alpsbetween the "Bundesländer" of Upper Austriaand Styria.
Warscheneckand Bosruck. The pass road (B 138) has a maximum grade of 10 percent.
Since the middle of the 1980s, traffic on the pass has been reduced by the opening of the
Bosruck Tunnelfor the A 9 " Autobahn". There has also been a railroad 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.
On the Upper Austrian side west of the pass is the summer and
ski resort Wurzeralm, and east of the pass Bosruck, which is noted for hikingand cross-country skiing.
Because the pass is a relatively low one, it has been important regionally since the
