Kaiserjägerstrasse / Monterovere is one of the most challenging roads in the world. Located in the Italian province of Trentino, the road includes some narrow sections scarcely wide enough for two cars to pass at the same time.
The road also known as Strada dell’Alpini and Strada Provinciale SP 133 di Monterovere is asphalted, but it's steep, narrow, and without central marked lines. The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. Along the way, there are beautiful views of the Lake Caldonazzo, Levico Lake and Monte Panarotta. This old military road was built in 1911 as a war road from the "Kaiserjäger" in order to transport materials for the construction of fortifications in the south of the road lying border between Austria-Hungary and Italy, the later Italian front.
