From here, first follow the road toward Lautersee, before occasionally steep climb to the traditional alpine tavern above Lautersee lake begins. After several steep rises toward the Ederkanzel, hikers will reach the infamous "Bavarian Curve," a steep and narrow turn, which must be particularly looked out for on the descent.
