The Brenner Pass is a pass through the Alps at the Austria-Italian border, at 1,370 metres.
The pass has been one of the most important passages through the Alps since ancient times. Today it is traversed by highway E45 and a railroad between Innsbruck and Bolzano. A base tunnel making the railroad both flatter and shorter than it currently is, with construction to be complete some time in the 2020s or 2030s.
In summer, the Brenner Pass is a gratifying route for hiking and cycling.
