The cobbles make it a special and tough start as you turn right up the mountain. This is also the steepest part. The climb then starts right away. continues nicely, and sometimes it seems like you can't make any progress because of the wide road and the fact that you can see quite far ahead. The views over the valley are very nice.
After a little up and down, it can be extended towards waisse wak to climb an additional approx. 2.5km.

De kasseien maken het een bijzondere en pittige start als je rechtsaf gaat de berg op. Dit is ook wel het steilste stuk. De klim begint dan gelijk. loopt mooi door, en soms lijkt het alsof je niet vooruitkomt door de brede weg en het feit dat je redelijk ver vooruit kunt kijken. De uitzichten over het dal zijn erg mooi.
Na een klein stukje op en af is deze te verlengen richting waisse wak om nog ca 2,5km extra te klimmen.

The start from Vianden over the cobblestones makes this climb unique. Apart from being very bumpy, it was also quite steep. Leaving Vianden, you come to a large two-lane road with perfect tarmac and quite a bit of traffic. In the beginning, you have a nice view of the castle. After that, you mostly drive through stretches of forest. It is not really hard and steep, but the wide road makes you feel like you have hardly any speed. After about 5 km you reach the top. After that, there is a small descent and a short climb to the real summit but that is not much.

De start vanuit Vianden over de kasseien maakt deze klim uniek. Buiten dat dit erg hobbelt was het ook nog best steil. Bij het uitrijden van Vianden kom je op een grote tweebaansweg met perfect asfalt en best wel wat verkeer. In het begin heb je nog af een mooi uitzicht op het kasteel. Daarna rijd je veelal door stukken bos. Echt zwaar en steil is het dan niet maar door de brede weg heb je continu het gevoel dat je nauwelijks snelheid hebt. Na ongeveer 5 km ben je boven. Daarna krijg je nog een kleine afdaling en een kort klimmetje naar de echte top maar dat stelt niet veel meer voor.

One of the longest climbs in Luxembourg that I have been able to find. Vianden is beautiful and the first part over the cobblestones, which are in good shape, makes it special. After that good tarmac and percentages which are good to do. At the top you have a nice view over the river and road below.

Een van de langste klimmen in Luxemburg die ik heb kunnen vinden. Vianden is prachtig en het eerste stuk over de kasseien, die er goed bijliggen, maakt het speciaal. Daarna goed asfalt en percentages die goed te doen zijn. Als je boven bent heb je een mooi uitzicht over de lager gelegen rivier en weg.

First part through Vianden is great over the cobblestones, and as soon as you change to asphalt you are treated to a beautiful view of the castle of Vianden.
Then you go right into the woods towards the lake (which you can not see by the way) and after some swinging you have during the spur fantastic views on the right side.

Eerste stuk door Vianden is geweldig over de kasseien, en zodra je over gaat op asfalt word je getrakteerd op een prachtig uitzicht op het kasteel van Vianden.
Hierna ga je rechts de bossen in richting het stuwmeer (wat je overigens niet kan zien liggen) en na wat geslinger heb je tijdens de uitloper fantastische vergezichten aan de rechterkant.

Seriously long climb and over 300 altimeters. First part on cobblestones is nice and still quite steep. Then a wide road with regular bends. First nice view of the castle, then good but not special.

Serieus lange beklimming en ruim 300 hoogtemeters. Eerste deel over de kasseien zijn leuk en nog best steil. Daarna een brede weg met regelmatig een bocht. Eerst mooi uitzicht op het kasteel, daarna prima maar niet bijzonder.

The long spur is nothing special. The first part from Vianden over the cobblestones is fun!

De lange uitloper is niets bijzonders. Het eerste stuk vanuit Vianden over de kinderkopjes leuk!!
