The Riedberg Pass (Riedbergpass) is positioned at an altitude of 1,420 m (4,659 ft.) above sea level in the Allgäu Alps of Bavaria, Germany. This is the highest mountain pass in Germany and connects the German village Fischen with Austrian village Hittisau. Those approaching this pass from the eastern side can expect a pretty intense incline (16% gradient), but the decline towards Fischen (19%) is pretty spectacular and quite the pleasure ride for motorcyclists. Once you cross over into Austria, the road coasts down into the foothills of the Bregenz Forest - which offers visitors pristine views of nature, a taste of old tradition and houses a well-known ski resort for those who want to partake in outdoor recreational activities. There is a parking lot on the summit and this pass is said to be bustling with tourists in the summer months - therefore increasing traffic. The Riedberg Pass is accessible all year around.
