The Gerlos Pass is located in the Austrian Alps amongst the Oberpinzgau region in the state of Salzburgand and the Zillertal valley in Tyrol at an elevation of 1,500 meters (4,921 ft.) above sea level. This panoramic mountain pass was established by Frank Wallack, the renowned architect of the Grossglocker Alpine Road and was once the passageway for gold seekers and adventures due it being the shortest course between Salzachtal and the Zillertal. Travelers can enjoy a pleasure ride of graceful turns at a 9% incline and an exquisite view of the Krimml Waterfalls that can be seen from all the car parks along the 12 km commute from Krimml to the highest point of the pass. The Gerlos is open 365 days a year and allows those looking to participate in winter sports access to the extensive Zillertal Arena - home to the ski regions Zell am Ziller, Gerlos-Königsleiten-Hochkrimml, Gerlosstein and Ramsberg.
