  • Beautiful and sometimes poisonous increase, however, a lot of traffic and the descent is so steep that you can not really enjoy the sheer brakes.

  • It is advisable to start from Obermaiselstein. The 16% slope is short. The descent to Baldetschwang can be enjoyed, the to Obermaiselstein is because of the tight curves and the steep slope rather a cramp. In strong winds, it carries quite a bit out of the bends. When oncoming traffic comes ...

  • The Riedberg pass from Fischen is already a crisp climb - although "only" 600 meters, but the up to 16% steep ramps are already an announcement.

  • It is a nice and crisp pass with a height of 1407 m, but there is still a higher and namely the Roßfeld-Höhenringstraße (1560 m) at Berchtesgaden.

  • A nice, crisp, but manageable climb - only the traffic, especially the many motorcyclists were a disaster !!! By cutting the bends, it was sometimes really dangerous and unfortunately reduced the joy of starting ...

  • Would recommend the neighboring Rohrmoospass as an alternative - no cars, very pleasant slope, good asphalt.

  • A very nice pass from both sides. It feels nicer to drive up from Obermeistelstein. Can get very crowded at weekends (motorcyclists), usually very pleasant to ride during the week.You can find our 6 favorite tours in the Allgäu in the Collection:

  • Now I finally know what I need first gear for...!
    Great landscape, new surface, a few tourists who drive up to hike, but ..... just steep, at the top 16% and over a longer period of time. The 6/7% in the middle part feel really flat.

  • More pleasant to drive up from Balderschwang. Lots of motorcyclists!
    Very steep descent, you are almost permanently on the brakes. Road surface is great! A good alternative would be the Rohrmoos Pass!

  • I drove up from Obermeiselstein and at the start you get the 16% note - awesome 😜
    Apart from the many motorcyclists, it was still very easy to drive.
    But next time I won't pick a day with 30 degrees because the sun is beating down the entire route - no shade! Brutal 🥵
