The Faschinajoch is a mountain pass in the Alps (Eastern Alps, Northern Limestone Alps) at 1486 m above sea level . It is located in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg and connects the valley of the Bregenzer Ach (Bregenz Forest) near Damüls with the valley of the Lutz (Großes Walsertal) near Faschina.

Faschina Straße (formerly Bundesstraße 193, now L 193) runs over the pass, which is well-developed and winter-proof. The eastern part of the route is very popular with motorcyclists.

The Faschinajoch gets its name from ‘Fassia’, which means ‘a strip of meadow’. It was first mentioned in a document as ‘Vaschin’ in 1482. At that time, most of the alpine pastures were already in use on the crossing; It is reported from later years that a house stood on the top of the pass, which was continuously occupied not only in summer but also in winter. A small chapel dedicated to Holy Mother Anna was also attached to this house.
