    The descent in the direction of Bötzingen is one of the few routes where you can drive relatively safely speeds beyond 80 km / h. Although the Black Forest offers many roads with a higher gradient, but these are often narrower and curvy above all.

    The Vogelsang Pass is an entry into the Kaiserstuhl from Bötzingen to Vogtsburg. The view of the Black Forest is beautiful, there is a small parking space for a rest - from here you can start hiking well.
    The climb is not very long, but quite steep. Not to be recommended on too hot days during the day: it is not shady and like everywhere on the Kaiserstuhl often very warm.

    Just like the Texas Pass, the Vogelsang Pass is a MUST at a road bike week in the Kaiserstuhl.

    Great view of Freiburg and the Black Forest. With the small refuge a good place to take a break. Rise coming from Altvogtsburg is short very crisp.Also for hikers a popular starting point for hikes in the Kaiserstuhl, so there is always plenty going on in good weather.

    great view of the Black Forest mountain range from Kandel to Blauen. Not too high a pass, but it still has it all! from here you can continue into the Kaiserstuhl or start hikes to the Eichberg Tower, St. Catherine's Chapel or the beautiful Liliental (Gasthaus Lilienhof)

    The Vogelsang Pass is the eastern gateway to the Kaiserstuhl, if you come from Freiburg. It connects Bötzingen with Alt-Vogtsburg and is also the starting point of hiking trails through the volcanic mountains.
