If you are staying at Im Eifel Cycling hotel then you will come over the K35 on the way there and back, unless you come mountain biking 😉 The K35 is therefore the road to and from Bonsbeuern, which you climb from the B49 or Bad Bertrich. A road much discussed by our guests where everyone has a different preference for the final climb “home.
The long or the short climb
Bonsbeuern can be reached either from Bad Bertrich or from the B49, either the long or short climb. The climb from Bad Bertrich is short and steep, about 3km and according to Climfinder to the top of the mountain 4.7km. From the B49, the climb is about 6.5km or, according to Climbifnder, 5.3 to the top of the mountain. What your preference is should be your own experience, our experience is that it differs for everyone!
Both climbs belong to the 3rd category according to the Mountain Categories introduced by the Tour de France in 1933.
Short climb - Bad Bertrich to Bonsbeuern
Long climb - B49 to Bonsbeuern

Ideal for interval training
Regularly professionals come to the Eifel for interval training, this because there are many opportunities for short intensive climbs. The K35, from Höllental to Bad Bertrich, the road to and from Im Eifel Gasthaus, has nice challenges to prepare for. This also because of the fact that the K35 is a category climb.
