Tips

  • ROAAR

    The spoil dump, located south of Grevenbroich in the Rhenish lignite mining area, is known to many as the "Mont Ventoux of the Rhineland". Its exposed location and the three possible driveways make the Vollrather Höhe a popular destination for cyclists in the region. In addition, there is no other way to go uphill here far and wide.

    The 1,700 meter long approach from Allrath to the hill is perhaps less attractive. But it offers more cycling ambience, because a mountain time trial takes place here every year. The increase is definitely not to be underestimated: it is irregular. A short descent pretends that it is now done, but behind the curve it goes uphill again until the plateau is reached.

    Incidentally, it is named after the Vollrath estate, which stood here until 1953.

    There are not many ways to go uphill in this area. And if so, they are usually not of natural origin. Just like here. This "mountain" would not exist without the former lignite mine Frimmersdorf-West and its unusable remains, which were tipped up here until the 1970s. Today it is beautifully wooded and somehow a nice contrast to the slippery surrounding area.

    Good opportunity to make a little difference in altitude in the otherwise flat surrounding area.
    The driveway has a decent asphalt and is in the shade on sunny days.

    Highly exhausting, but downhill is great fun

    The climb from Welchenberg is a bit nicer and this side is more suitable for the descent solely from the asphalt.

    Cool climbs, from easy (from Allrath) to challenging (from Neuenhausen). Departure to Neuenhausen then also drive accordingly.

    To train a few meters in altitude, the altitude is not that bad. So 92 times and you have climbed 10,000 meters

    One of the mythical climbs in the Rhenish energy flat pampas ;-) The Allrath side has good asphalt and a fairly even incline. The associated Strava segment has 2.43 km with 91 hm with an average gradient of 3.7%.

    Nice long climb. Also for "inexperienced" climbers like me, really great to practice.

    Really cool climbs, from easy (from Allrath) to demanding (from Neuenhausen). Departure to Neuenhausen then also drive carefully, I always drive all of them .... just nice to have a slope / descent

    Be careful on the southern ramp. The upper part of the road surface is damaged by broken roots.

    The small road between Ingendorf and Büsdorf has little traffic and meanders beautifully through the landscape.
