The Duivelsberg is 1000 meters long and bridges a height difference of 45 meters. The maximum slope is 10%. At the foot of the slope is the Duivelsbergcircuit, a racing circuit for rallycross. In the middle of the woods on top of the Duivelsberg is also Villa Fridhem, which is part of the Royal Domain of Opgrimbie. This villa is privately owned by the royal family of Belgium and was the country residence of King Baudouin.
