Tour Information

The Black Forest is one of our most popular self guided motorcycle tours. It is also one of Germany’s most picturesque regions. This tour is also designed for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Your motorcycle holiday starts with a morning channel crossing. The route winds through the vineyards of the Champagne region. This is also your first overnight destination.

Next day you will continue your journey to the Black Forest. It is one of Europe’s most attractive biking destinations. It is also often referred to as paradise for motorcycles.

During the next three days you will base yourself here. The hotel is one of our biker-friendly hotels. It has an excellent restaurant as well as a well stocked wine cellar.

From here you can explore Lake Titisee as well as Schluchsee. It is just the place to treat yourself with a slice of Black Forest gateau. You can also take a ride to Feldberg. It is the highest mountain in the Black Forest. Visit the historic Freiburg as well as the spa town Baden-Baden.

Without any doubt, the scenic highlight of this trip is the marvellous Lake Titisee. The lake’s crystal clear water and waterfront promenade make it high on the priority list. It is also one of the most popular places to visit in the Black Forest.

During your stay you may (should) opt to take a ride along the famous B500. The road will take you to the tranquil mountain lake Mumelsee. In the past it was a place of many tales and legends. They featured water nymphs and an underwater king. However nowadays the lake is also an extremely popular biking destination. It is a convenient coffee or lunch spot as well.

This road has fantastic surface as well as long sweeping bends. It might be tempting to focus just on riding. But please also take your time and stop from time to time to admire the views. There are numerous rest places that offer uninterrupted views of the Black Forest. You can even see neighbouring France.

Another day trip will take you to Triberg. Here you can visit the highest waterfall in the Black Forest. The town is also home to the world’s largest cuckoo clock.

The open air museum in Gutach is dedicated to the region’s folk history. It is also an excellent addition to your itinerary. The museum shows how people lived as well as worked throughout history. While you are there why not pop next door. And have an exciting toboggan ride.

And finally you might wish to add one more country to your tour log. In that case a visit to Schaffhausen waterfalls is a must. This ride to Switzerland is highly recommended. There are many viewing platforms. They offer spectacular waterfall views as well as the river Rhine. As an extra bonus you can go on a boat trip. Or even visit the spectacular Laufen Castle.

From the Black Forest you will return to the Champagne region before returning to the UK.

If this sounds too good to be true. Why not join this tour and find out for yourself?
