Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
The Tour of Flanders has its “Kappelmuur”, Paris - Roubaix the “Forest of Arenberg” and around Cologne the roughly paved approach up to Bensberg Castle.
The comparison mentioned above is probably not quite right, but in fact the cobblestone passage has become the landmark of Germany's oldest one-day race still in existence. This is where the audience romps around and applauds the drivers who struggle up the 100-meter-long, dead-straight route to the castle.
Schlossstrasse is one of the few paved climbs in the greater Cologne area and therefore a must for all cycling fans in the region. If you collect funny Bergisch place names on your routes and want to add a highlight to your collection, we recommend continuing through the “Zuckerhütchen” district.

Mainly cobblestones! At 130 meters not really long, but one of the classics of the race around Cologne. And the view of the castle makes up for the shaking.
It is also worth taking a look back, after all, the street and palace were aligned precisely with Cologne Cathedral.
