KOM BERLIN is a climbing festival  for Gravel, MTB and CX bikes, raced over a 3,3km gravel circuit at the highest point in Berlin. Each lap nets 85m altitude and is open to cyclists of all ages from amateur to elite. At KOM there are events of different lengths, and solo riders can even try Ultra KOM, a very special 24-hour race, and try to complete a full everesting, approved by everesting.cc! Witness this elevation spectacle with beer, music and nice people for a guaranteed good time. Bring family and friends and make a weekend out of KOM Berlin – camping from Friday until Sunday is allowed!

5 Formats!

Ultra Cycling in the City! Solo riders can attempt to ride the 8848m of Mt Everest. A full everesting is 104 laps (343km)! Too much for you? No problem! You can start this challenge any time within the 24 hours and simply  see how high you can get. Feldberg? Puig Major? Alpe d’Huez? You decide!

By Team Everesting, teams of 1-4 riders ride simultaneously to be the first to reach the 8.848 meters of Mt. Everest. This is Sudden-Death mode: it’s over when the first team summits. This usually take about 4 hours. 

New for 2024: Team apparel gets your team 1 free lap—PER RIDER! 

Arkenberger Crit is a 1-hour race. Racers take note: This is the unofficial Berlin/Brandenburg Hill Climb Championships!

All riders and spectators are welcome to join a “just for fun” race to the top. This year we will also host a children’s race!

All day long we’ll be watching the track for the Fastest riders and awards some prizes for Fastest Lap!

KOM Berlin Start 2023

Location

This gravel climbing spectacle will once again take place at the Arkenberge, Berlin’s highest point at 121,9 metres. The Arkenberge offers fantastic views of Berlin and the surrounding Brandenburg, with fresh air, nature and plenty of open space. Even more importantly, the Arkenberge is an ideal venue for a legendary cycling event. There is even swimming in the lake, weather permitting.

Strasse nach Arkenberge 82, 13127 Berlin
