Profile Sattele-northwest

The ascent to the so-called Sattele (Austrian for small mountain pass), also called Silzer Sattel, from the Inn Valley is certainly not a child's play. In total, the road gains 1007 elevation meters over a horizontal distance of only 9.7 kilometers. So, on average, the gradient is 10.4%. Because the last one and a half kilometers are a bit easier (6-8%), the first eight kilometers are steeper than those 10.4%, namely 11.0%, on average. Fortunately, within these eight kilometers there are hardly any outliers to even higher percentages. This wonderful steepness is not the only advantage of this ascent. The cyclist may also enjoy the beautiful views of the Inn Valley and the mountains beyond. A little disappointing were the traffic, which was relatively dense for a white street on the map, and the Sattele itself, which is an insignificant place.
