Anyone who's a fan of bikeracing, should visit and walk/climb this hill. Only then you'll get an idea of the effort it requires to race to the top on a bike!

The wall of Geraardsbergen is probably the most famous part in the tour of Flanders, the most beautiful cycling course in Flanders, according to the Flandriens. Cycling fanatics would of course go up the hill by bike. I instead chose to walk up, and with...More

This is famous or infamous with cyclists, but well worth the walk up as well. On the small hill, there is a chapel, not too particular. The reason to do the climb is that it is the highest hill in the area, giving a nice...More

This is the very famous "Wall" or "De Muur" of Geraardsbergen, or, rather infamous, among cyclists, with the steep incline and cobblestones. Anyone into cycling should try it, it is a challenge! Great views once you get to the top, of the Flemish landscape.

We live here, so this "wall" is very familiar to us all. Sometimes we walk from our home in the Dender valley to the top, and that's quite a climb! If you're in a good shape you use your bike to climb to the top,...More

The wall, that means "de muur" in Flemisch or Dutch is a wellknown place in the region. In fact the climing starts already just after the border of the river called "Dender." The street goes up in a rather havy way, but it is still...More
