Black Forest Tour
Amazing motorcycle tour through the Black Forest!
The Black Forest is a perfect location for exciting motorcycle tours throughout some of Germany’s best-known sceneries. Imagine a quiet countryside dotted with enormous traditional farmhouses and patrolled by amiable dairy cows. It’s not nature wild and remote, but bucolic and picturesque. It’s not the extreme alpine style riding, but wonderful winding paved roads connecting traditional towns, lakes, waterfalls reaching 4,500 ft elevation for incredible views of the Swiss Alps, the Rhine Valley and French Alsace.
On curvy roads!
The tour starts in Zurich, Northern Switzerland, leading along remote and curvy back country roads to the heart of Black Forest where you will spend 4 nights at Lake Titisee, one of the Black Forest most famous tourist destinations. Three days of riding from that location will offer you a new route every day. Visit castles, lakes, farmhouses, traditional woodcraft shops (save for your new cuckoo clock) and Europe’s largest waterfalls, the Rhine Falls. Enjoy regional foods like Black Forest cured ham and fresh Black Forest baked breads straight from the oven with plentiful cheese. Extraordinary dinners will be served in multi-course meals at the hub hotel each night and if you are looking for some entertainment a local train will take you to the city of Freiburg. This city was incorporated in the early 12th century and has a downtown full of historical medieval buildings.
An excellent entrance step to riding motorcycles in Europe!
This tour offers an excellent entrance step to riding motorcycles in Europe. It is a great tour to ride two-up. Weather and riding styles will determine the actual daily routes. Only on the first and last day will you have to pack your luggage in the morning to be carried by our support vehicle to and from the Black Forest.
Highlights: Black Forest, Lake Constance, French Alsace, Rhine Falls, World's largest Cuckoo Clock, Black Forest Open Air Museum, Hohkoenigsburg Castle
