    The Texas Pass is a great climb from both sides - as usual in the Kaiserstuhl, it is also a little steeper, especially the Kiechlinsbergen ramp with a little more than 12 percent. This ascent leads most of the time through forest and is preferable in summer at least at lunchtime, because the hump, which is actually called "Auf dem Eck", got its nickname supposedly because it can get "as hot as in Texas".

    Alongside the Vogelsangpass, the serpentines are probably the most famous ascent around Kaiserstuhl. In terms of nature experience, they are even significantly higher.

    The actual name of the "Texas Pass" is of Alemannic origin and is "Auf dem Eck", whereby participants of the "Rothaus-Regio-Tour" gave the pass its name (schwarzwald-aktuell.eu/gschichtle/g- schichtle-89-the-texaspass-im-kaiserstuhl). The view over the picturesque vineyard terraces is a delight in every season.

    The Texas Pass connects the two Kaiserstuhl towns of Oberbergen and Kiechlinsbergen. He is best known for the regional tour, which takes place every year in August in the border triangle. The final stage always leads on a circular route through the Kaiserstuhl, with the Texas Pass having to be climbed several times. The pass has only been called the Texas Pass since it was included in the regional tour, because of its switchbacks. Its real name is of Alemannic origin and is "Auf dem Eck". We would like to thank Ms. Gerda Kauschat from the Kaiserstuhl Tourist Office in Endingen for clarifying this matter.

    Nice climb from Oberbergen, however there is always a risk of being cut by motorists on weekends. Sometimes it pays to block the trail 🤷‍♂️
