Brenner Pass

The Brenner Pass is an opening through the Tyrolean Alps along the current border between the nations of Austria and Italy. It is one of the few accessible points through which the Alps can be crossed in the Tyrol region, and for that reason has long been coveted by both nations. Since 1918, control of the pass has been shared between them.
