Profile Pillerhöhe-northeast

The Pillerhöhe is the only driveable mountain pass joining the Pitztal with the Kaunertal. In addition, one may reach the Pillerhöhe from the Inn Valley. Among the three ascents to the Pillerhöhe, the ride of this page, starting from Wenns in the Pitztal, is the busiest and the easiest. It is suitable as a training tour (595 elevation meters) for tougher challenges. The first five kilometers (3-8%) are hardly remarkable. This is followed by a steeper kilometer in the village of Piller (9%) and then by an almost horizontal kilometer. The most exciting are the last two kilometers where the road crosses a dense forest and which include the steepest kilometer of the climb (10.7%). Turn left at a fork (the Pillerhöhe itself). The culmination point and thus the destination is located more than 200 meters further at the foot of the Naturparkhaus Kaunergrat. It is worth walking to the viewpoint located slightly lower down to look into the steep and deep Inn Valley.
