Firm calf-biter which is all in all quite doable. At the 'top' near the terraces you can continue to the highest point - as indicated above - via a narrow road in the forest. The asphalt there is less good and it is careful for the many hikers at a steep slope. If you 'm doing it comp... read more

Firm calf-biter which is all in all quite doable. At the 'top' near the terraces you can continue to the highest point - as indicated above - via a narrow road in the forest. The asphalt there is less good and it is careful for the many hikers at a steep slope. If you 'm doing it completely, the Kluisberg is really one of the tougher climbs in the Flemish Ardennes!

Stevige kuitenbijter die al bij al goed te doen is. Aan de 'top' bij de terrasjes kan je nog doorgaan tot het hoogste punt - zoals hierboven ook aangegeven - via een smal weggetje in het bos. De asfalt ligt daar minder goed en het is oppassen voor de vele wandelaars bij een stevige hellingsgraad. Als je 'm volledig doet is de Kluisberg echt wel een van de zwaardere klimmetjes in de Vlaamse Ardennen!

The Kluisberg is for me the ideal mountain for climbing training, at about 25 kilometers cycling from my door I'm on the spot and then I cycle up and down the mountain a number of times, there are seven different routes possible, so you can get some variation via this one mountain. The mountain is in some places quite steep so it can be spicy, ideal climbing training in the otherwise flat landscape. Especially with the recumbent pretty heavy.

De Kluisberg is voor mij de ideale berg voor de klimtraining, op ongeveer 25 kilometer fietsen van mijn deur ben ik ter plaatse en dan fiets ik een aantal keren de berg op en af, er zijn zeven verschillende routes mogelijk, zodoende kan men wat variatie via deze ene berg bekomen. De berg is op sommige plaatsen behoorlijk steil zodat het wel pittig kan worden, ideale klimtraining in het voor de rest vlakke landschap. Vooral met de ligfiets behoorlijk zwaar.

The profile says it all. Long warm up and then a steep section to the top.
I personally don't think it's a pretty area and the road can be busy. Is an iconic mountain though, visible from far away in the wide area.

Het profiel zegt eigenlijk alles. Lange opwarming en dan een steil stuk naar de top toe.
Ik vind het persoonlijk geen mooie omgeving en de weg kan druk zijn. Is wel een iconische berg die van ver zichtbaar is in de wijde omgeving.

I personally found this a nice climb.
Started very quiet and spicy lock.
But is certainly good to do.

Ik vond dit persoonlijk wel een leuke beklimming.
Begon heel rustig en pittig slot.
Maar is zeker goed te doen.

Once at the top, you can turn left and follow a narrow, asphalted and sometimes steep road ("Enclus du Haut"), up to the real top of the Kluisberg (140 m).

Eenmaal aan de top kan je links afslaan en een smalle, geasfalteerde en soms steile weg ("Enclus du Haut") volgen, tot aan de echte top van de Kluisberg (140 m).

With full luggage on the trekking bike up. A real calf biter!

Met volle bepakking op de trekking fiets omhoog. Een echte kuitenbijter!
