Gaberl Pass (el. 1551 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Austrian Alps in the Bundesland of Styria.

A steep road connects Köflach with the upper Mur River valley, running next to the Stubalpe. This road dates from Roman times.

It is a popular destination for both summer and winter sports.

On a clear day, the views are wide to the Dachstein in the northwest, the Riegersburg in the south and east, and into Hungary and Slovenia.
