Road Cycling Highlight
The pass impresses with several possibilities of approach. From Colmar, the road is pretty busy. Here it is not recommended to drive, but to use the side roads at LacBlanc and then via Trois-Epis.
From LacBlanc (and thus from Bonhomme) it is wonderful in summer. Only the motorcyclists are to be considered.
From the other direction, the Route de Cretes comes down from Hohneck. Here with parking and many hiking tourists. But very beautiful.
The best part is the climb from Geradmer. It is not advisable to drive over the Budnes road (although the Roche du diable is worth a detour), but to turn off to the Lac du Longemer and take the steeper climb up to the pass road in purchasing.
The Col itself is waiting for a great summer toboggan run and a very acceptable restaurant.

The pass connects Munster in the east with Gerardmer in the west and lies at the apex of 1,138 meters above sea level.

If he is not locked for the tour, he is unfortunately very busy.

The country road D 417 (Route départementale 417) over the Col de la Schlucht connects the cities of Munster in the east and Gérardmer in the west. At the Col de la Schlucht, the pass road crosses the Route des Crêtes, a 77 km long high-altitude road that runs from Lac Blanc to Cernay and always moves at an altitude of around 1000 meters. In addition, the D 61 joins the pass from the north and the D 430 meets the D 417 a few hundred meters west of the pass from the south.

In the upper section, the approach to the Col de la Schlucht then really spectacular, after she leads down rather quietly through the forest. Here the road is built in a steep and rocky slope, leads through a short tunnel and then runs rather flat to the pass.

The driveway from Munster is only moderately steep and runs very smoothly. Mostly tranquil through the forest, only in the last section also spectacular by a steep and rocky slope. A lot of traffic, especially popular with motorized bikers - so if possible, rather early in the day driving.
