Tour Information

This self guided motorcycle tour to the Black Forest is designed for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

The Black Forest is Germany’s most picturesque regions. It is covered with tall fir trees and spruces.

After the morning crossing you will ride towards your first overnight destination. Your hotel is located in the Champagne region.

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

The next three nights you will base yourself in the southern Black Forest. The hotel is one of our biker-friendly hotels and has an excellent restaurant as well as well stocked wine cellar.

From here you can explore Lakes Titisee as well as Schluchsee. It is just the places to treat your self with a slice of Black Forest gateau. You can take also a ride to Feldberg the highest mountain in the Black Forest. Visit the historic towns of Freiburg as well as Baden-Baden.

Without any doubt, the scenic highlight of this trip is the marvellous setting of Lake Titisee. The crystal-clear water of the lake and the waterfront promenade make Titisee 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. It 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 now days it is an extremely popular biking destination and coffee or lunch spot.

This road has fantastic surface as well as long sweeping bends. As tempting as it may be just to focus on ride please 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 and even the neighbouring France.

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

In addition you may decide to visit the open air museum in Gutach as well. The museum is dedicated to showing how people lived and worked in Black Forest farmhouses during the last 400 years. While you are there why not pop next door and have an exciting toboggan ride.

Finally, if you wish to add one more country to your tour log than a visit to Schaffhausen waterfalls in Switzerland is highly recommended. There are many viewing platforms with spectacular views on the falls as well as the river Rhine. As an extra bonus you can go on a boat trip or visit the spectacular Laufen Castle.

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

If this sounds too good to be true, why not join this tour and find out for your self?

PLEASE NOTE: This tour can be extended by adding the Luxembourg and/or Swiss Alps tour.
