Bicycling mountain roads and passes

Welcome to the cutting-edge of uphill cycling
and world's most famous ascents of each of the continents



Feldberg 1,493m
Black Forest's highest mountain

The Feldberg mountain has almost 1,500 meters of altitude and is the highest mountain in German state Baden-Württemberg and in the Black Forest mountain range. The way up to Feldberg mountain is very scenery and continuously asphalted but becomes very steep on its last kilometers. Thus, a mountain bike is recommended to reach the top.

This tour describes the northern approach from Neustadt/Titsee. At first the way leads through idyllic scene of the Black Forest, proceeding on the B317 roadway to the pass summit at some 1,250 meters. Finally the way continues at the cable car valley station further four kilometers up to the Feldberg peak.

Departure in Neustadt.

A pleasant bicycling path leads in direction Titisee...

...and provides nice Black Forest scenery.

Titisee Lake

Behind the lake you can identify in the very back snow-capped Feldberg summit (mid of May).

It is recommended to take the western way round the lake as this street provides less motorised traffic than the main road on the eastern siede of the lake.

The way proceeds on the B317 main road (usually with heavy traffic).

Pass summit of the main road

Close behind the pass summit the way continues to the right to the valley station of Feldberg cable car.
At the very left of this parking area a small paved way leads to the summit.

The Franz-Klarmeyer-Way is somewhat bumpy and quite steep in its lower part...

...but provides great Black Forest landscape.

The way conditions improve significantly and the route becomes plainly asphalted.

At an altitude of some 1,420 meters you have reached the plateau of the summit's area. The way proceeds to the right to the mountain station of the cable car and to the left to Feldberg's main summit. The way in the left back is significantly steeper than it appears to be.

View back from the steep ramp to the look-out on the close-by minor peak.

German meteorological services run a facility on the Feldberg summit. The stone in the center of the area marks the summit.
