Grebbeberg

Source: Rieno ✅ Routes

From the east, the ascent of the Grebbeberg is only 600 meters long. The first 200 meters of the Grebbeweg increase by more than 7% and then another 300 meters of 5%. You will cover a total of 37 altimeters. Despite the length, still a real calf biter!

The Grebbeberg in Rhenen is a 52 meter high hill that forms the southeastern tip of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, a moraine. Due to its strategic location with a view of the Lower Rhine and the Betuwe, this hill is historically of great importance. In the 18th century, the Grebbelinie was built from here. The hill is best known for the Battle of the Grebbeberg in May 1940. On the Grebbeberg is the Grebbeberg Field of Honour where Dutch soldiers are buried from the Battle of the Grebbeberg.
