Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
One of our favorite Cols is the route up to Halberg: a little over a kilometer long, an average of 7.6 percent steep and more curves than Ulle at Christmas time.
Immediately behind the Donrath triangle, a steep ramp leads up to the Finale Furioso: it is like hairpins on the Stelvio. As soon as you have found a rhythm through the winding serpentines, redemption is already in sight.
In the shade of an ancient summer linden tree, the Halberg chapel, consecrated to Sankt Isidor, crowns the top of the pass. Take a deep breath and send a short "www" to heaven - Saint Isidore is the patron saint of the internet.

In my opinion one of the funniest runs in the corner of the Bergisch. But for me this climb has always been the "Weegener climb", since Weegen still has a bit to go for Halberg. On the back there is also an ascent directly from the Agger, which leads directly to this descent, but it is really steep
