Gerlos Pass (elevation 1,500 m, 4,921 ft) is a mountain pass in the Austrian Alps between the Oberpinzgau region in the state of Salzburg and the Zillertal valley in Tyrol. The old road leads from Wald im Pinzgau to Gerlos in the Zillertal valley. It is closed to trucking and not always open in winter. A new toll road that is open all year was built in the 1960s from Krimml to Gerlos.
