This is a wonderful climb. It begins in the village of Münstertal at the intersection of the L123 and the L130. At the very beginning the slope is almost negligible (1%) but then it gradually increases to reach 8% after five kilometers. This section leads through a magnificent, narrow valley. At first the road is surrounded by buildings and later by forests. After more than five kilometers, the valley widens and we reach the village of Münsterhalden. The next two kilometers through this beautiful village are the steepest of the whole ascent (8-10%). Next, we drive along the edge of the forest and after a hairpin bend forest lies on both sides of the road. Here the slope is constantly about 6%. Three and a half kilometers after Münsterhalden we reach a pass where we turn to the right. After another two kilometers and two serpentines Kreuzweg is reached.
