A really beautiful climb! The cobbles are really smooth and the gradient is quite gentle. Barely any traffic and a good overlook of the city once at the top... read more

A tough and fairly long cobblestone climb that unfortunately is also driven up by many vehicles. The cobblestones are ok and the steepness doesn't have to hurt, provided you use the right dosage. Nice views over the city of Namur and the option for fast descents on the other side of the citadel.

Lekker stevige en tamelijk lange kasseiklim die spijtig genoeg ook door veel voertuigen omhoog gereden wordt. De kasseien liggen er oké bij en de steiltegraad hoeft geen pijn te doen mits goede dosering. Mooie uitzichten over de stad Namen en de optie voor snelle afdalingen aan de andere kant van de citadel.

I really recommend this. The cobblestones ride better than many asphalt roads in Belgium ... The views are great and the loop where you first go through the gate and then over it is of course unequalled. Really a wonderful climb that you can also just quietly drive up to enjoy. Through the Avenue Jean 1er you can also descend on smooth asphalt!

Ik vind dit echt een aanrader. De kasseien rijden beter dan menig asfaltweg in Belgie... De uitzichten zijn schitterend en het lusje waarbij je eerst door de poort en daarna erover gaat is natuurlijk weergaloos. Echt een schitterende klim die je ook gewoon rustig omhoog kunt rijden om te genieten. Via de Avenue Jean 1er kun je ook heerlijk afdalen op glad asfalt!

mythical climb" with a beautiful road (sometimes cobbled but very good quality. Nice passage with a small bridge. Nice view on the Meuse and the Sambre.

montée "mythique" avec un belle route (parfois en pavés mais de très bonne qualité. Chouette passage avec un petit pont. Belle vue sur la Meuse et la Sambre.

One of my favorite hills in the country... if you don't hit too much traffic. On a nice day, the cars's can get a little annoying.

Eén van mijn favoriete hellingen van het land... als je niet te veel verkeer treft. Op een mooie dag kunnen de auto's wat gaan storen.

Ridden in the Tour de Namur, actually an indispensable climb if you visit the center of Namur. Beautiful views and not too bad cobblestones. Busy with traffic though.

Gereden in de Tour de Namur, eigenlijk een onmisbare klim als je het centrum van Namen aandoet. Mooie uitzichten en niet te slechte kasseitjes. Wel druk qua verkeer.

The climb has a beautiful view on Namur and climbs very gradually over cobblestones that are in a very good condition.

De beklimming heeft een prachtig uitzicht over Namen en klimt zeer geleidelijk over kasseien die er zeer goed bij liggen.

This is the closest 4th category climb near me (still 60k though) so I do this climb a few times a year.
Although there are cobbles it isn't very difficult, the cobbles aren't to bad and it isn't steep anywhere, the only thing u should remember that there are a few points that look like u are at the heighest point, but only if are on a very large square u are really on the top of the climb! U should also notice that alot of cars and motorbikes go up it and that there are a few events each year that close down the climb.
