In this Collection, we present you some seriously strenuous rides with a lot of altitude difference—but without the usual suspects. Instead of looking at the Alps or the Black Forest, we looked around in the rest of Germany and created strenuous mountain stages for all wannabe mountain men. From now on there are no more excuses: get on your bike and get everything out of the hill in front of your door.
Now, we don't want to discourage you from heading to beautiful Alpine passes. But let's be honest: when do you have the time outside of your holiday to travel to the Alps and make your calves burn? The Tours in this Collection are suitable for your weekend ride or can be done in an evening—and we've planned a colorful mix. Some Tours start at the outskirts of metropolitan areas or near large cities. We have made sure that the starting points are easily accessible by car or train so that your journey is quick and uncomplicated. Two Tours actually start in the middle of the city. We were surprised ourselves how many meters of altitude difference you can squeeze out of Hamburg and Berlin and would like to see how you are surprised to rub your sweaty eyes when you see the collected altitude meters on your bike computer after work is done. Have fun mountain training!
If you live in Berlin, you have many things. Only no altitude. That's why we grabbed our mountain training bag of tricks and put together a crisp round, which gives rise to a hint of low mountain feeling with their climbing. And in the middle of the city. Do not you think? Then watch ...Let's go to the Olympic …
Admittedly, with a height of 98 meters, the Aschberg hill is rather a hill, but it is a lot higher than any dune in the far north. And this short tour revolves around just this hill, which at least covers 410 meters in altitude on around 50 kilometers.It starts in a car park on the outskirts of Eckernförde overlooking …

1180 vertical meters at a distance of just 70 kilometers - that's how steep Ruhrpott can be. And still so beautiful. This is not a tour constructed around a few steep streets, but a really attractive lap on the edge of the Ruhr area, which once again proves how peaceful and green it can be here.You start on a …

At the gates of Cologne lies the Bergisches Land to the east, whose name does not derive from its topography, but goes back to the Duchy of Berg. Nevertheless, it is extremely hilly here and you can easily earn a lot of vertical meters. And that in a beautiful environment. In Bergisches Land there are many dams, each one of which is a highlight.
Hamburg and meters, there will be one or the other Berglandbewohner probably just tired smile about it. Nevertheless, Hamburg has to offer a real mountain classification, which has gained not least because of the Cyclassics race a certain cult status. After all, the Waseberg is waiting with 16 percent slope and rough asphalt and will be a challenge at the latest when you climb it several times in a row.
If you drive north through Germany, it will eventually become very shallow. Until he comes suddenly, quite unexpectedly. And want to know it again. The Teutoburg Forest is not a high mountain, but you can still earn any amount of altitude. The Teuto delights all northern lights from Osnabrück to Hanover with its hills and beautiful scenery and is for local racing cyclists who do not always want to fight against the wind, duty.
Thanks to its central location, the Harz is a haven for all nature lovers from the flatlands, from Hanover to Magdeburg. On the edge of the Harz is Clausthal-Zellerfeld, ideally suited as an easily accessible starting point for our sporty and mostly on quiet roads leading tour, although the Hochharz including chunks are right but still brings almost 1,500 vertical meters together.
