Better known as Kemmelberg-ossuaire. The colors on the profile map indicate it correctly, this climb only gets steeper towards the top. Helped or hindered by the wind, the first part is not too bad, from the cemetery on the right it gets very steep on the cobblestones. Bump to the angel.... read more

Beter bekend als Kemmelberg-ossuaire. De kleuren van de profielkaart geven het juist weer, deze klim wordt enkel maar steiler richting de top. Geholpen of tegengewerkt door de wind valt het eerste stuk nog mee, vanaf het kerkhof aan de rechterkant wordt het zeer steil op de kasseien. Beuken tot aan de engel.

I had the misfortune to ride up the Kemmelberg in the rain. I've done many climbs with the same steepness and steeper in the Ardennes but here I had to get off at 20m from the top because the rear wheel slipped... The cobblestones are better than the Bosberg but feel much slippery !

Had de pech om met regen de Kemmelberg op te rijden. Heb al veel beklimmingen gedaan met dezelfde steilte en steiler in de Ardennen maar hier moest is op 20m van de top afstappen wegens doorslippen van het achterwiel… De kasseien liggen beter dan de Bosberg maar voelen veel gladder !

Very hard climb also especially with the cobblestones found it not so fun because you have to suffer too hard that you almost do not get up there.

Zeer zware beklimming ook vooral met de kasseien vond het helemaal niet zo leuk omdat je er tehard op moet afzien dat je er bijna niet bovenraakt

The Kemmelberg is the icon of the beautiful Westhoek or West Flemish Hill Country, from afar you can already see this witness hill. Two climbs consist of cobblestones that are in a reasonably good condition, the third on the south side is asphalt. It is very steep, especially the last part from the west side to 23) on the cobblestones and this without a real run, a very small gear is recommended to reach the top while raking, going down is a rather risky undertaking. The other mountains in the area such as Monteberg with its vineyards, Zwarteberg, Rodeberg, Baneberg (up to 20%), Vidaigneberg and Scherpenberg are also worth a visit. A beautiful region that has kept its real authenticity, especially in combination with French Flanders just across the border with France where the fantastic Katsberg (Mont des Cats, they also have the same name Trappist, very tasty) and the ancient Flemish town Cassel are other unmissable mountains of this beautiful region. The West Flemish Mountains Cycle Route that starts in the village of Kemmel is a must for exploring the region.

De Kemmelberg is het icoon van de prachtige Westhoek of West-Vlaams Heuvelland, van ver zie je deze getuigenheuvel al opdoemen. Twee beklimmingen bestaan uit kasseien die er redelijk goed bij liggen, de derde aan de zuidkant is asfalt. Bijzonder steil, vooral het laatste gedeelte van de westkant tot 23% over de kasseien en dit zonder echte aanloop, een zeer kleine versnelling is aangewezen om al harkend boven te komen, naar beneden fietsen is er een behoorlijk riskante onderneming. Moet men zeker eens gedaan hebben, ook de andere bergjes in de buurt zoals de Monteberg met zijn wijngaarden, de Zwarteberg, Rodeberg, Baneberg (tot 20%), Vidaigneberg en de Scherpenberg. Een prachtige streek die nog zijn echte authenticiteit bewaard heeft, zeker in combinatie met Frans-Vlaanderen net over de grens met Frankrijk waar de fantastische Katsberg (Mont des Cats, men heeft daar ook de gelijknamige trappist, zeer lekker) en het oervlaamse stadje Cassel andere niet te missen bergjes zijn van deze prachtige streek. De West-Vlaamse Bergen fietsroute die in het dorp Kemmel start is een aanrader om de streek te verkennen.

Perfect if you want to hurt your legs! Keep a little bit left for the last part of the cobblestones, there's no chance of a run-up.

Perfect als je even de benen wil pijnigen! Hou vooral nog iets over voor het laatste stuk kasseien, een aanloop nemen zit er alvast niet in.
