The fixed route of MittelgebirgeClassique will lead the participants over approximately 40 mountain passes in the Palatinate Forest, Black Forest and in the Vosges.

The route is mostly paved and can therefore be easily tackled by road bike. However, there will be some short gravel passages. The highest passes in the Palatinate reach around 600m, in the Black Forest and the Vosges the passes rise to over 1400m.
