Hill signposts in Vejle

Photo: Vejle Kommune

Vejle’s many cycling hills are now even more fun to scale. Vejle Municipality has signposted 34 of the most popular climbs. The permanent signs feature information about the length of the hill, maximum Gradient, average Gradient and total ascent in metres.

The most famous is probably Kiddesvej, which lends its tarmac to the queen’s stage of the PostNord Denmark Rundt road cycling race. Denmark’s unofficially steepest hill is Christian Winthersvej with a gradient of 25%, twice the grade of the steepest part of the famous Tour de France L'Alpe d'Huez stage! With its serpentine twists, length and steepness, Munkebjerg is the hill in Denmark that comes closest to a true grade-alpine experience.
