Best Race Bike Rides to Niederwennerscheid – Cols de Cologne
  • The ascent from Nieder- to Oberwennerscheid is a real insider tip. It runs parallel to the main road leading through the Wahnbachtal and starts right behind the sawmill at the Hausermühle. There you cross the Wahnbach and turn sharply left onto the poorly paved path that leads steeply up through a dark coniferous forest.

    With a little imagination, you can imagine yourself here in the high mountains. In any case, this idea should not be difficult for the legs, given the gradient of up to 12 percent. After a good 500 meters you leave the forest and reach a hill with a great view over lush, curving pastures. Depending on the oxygen balance, this can even be enjoyed.

    After another 300 meters you will reach the top of the pass and continue towards Oberwennerscheid on the ridge height. If you feel like taking a little break, we recommend the café of the same name in Gutmühle. You can then build the next slope up to Seelscheid via Gutmühlenweg.

  • Nice climb through the forest, but the motorized oncoming traffic is annoying on the narrow road.
