German Motorbike Route
The original German Motorbike Route

Motorcyclist's view into the tunnel

The latest that Germany has to offer motorbike riders is a circuit measuring just under 9,000 km that starts and finishes on the "Blauen" in Badenweiler, currently the mountain with the highest passable road in the southern Black Forest. The German Motorbike Route - the new star in biker heaven - has been designed by motorbike riders based on criteria that are important to motorbike riders. The aim is to provide bikers with an interesting and winding route that goes right across and all around Germany, and that should eventually take on the same character and spirit as the legendary Route 66. With its length and diversity, the Motorbike Route is suitable for motorcycling at all levels.

The German Motorbike Route features romantic roads that wind past rivers and lakes, curvy stretches that lead through tunnels carved deep into the rock, and panoramic roads with picturesque backdrops. Some sections of the route offer the promise of adventure and are not so easily forgotten. The route takes you through tranquil areas and lively towns and cities - we recommend you leave some room in your panniers for purchases! On part of the German Motorbike Route, the Alps provide an awe-inspiring backdrop. If you are looking to put your driving skills to the test here, then make sure you have plenty of experience under your belt. The weather is not always good and asphalt roads can be treacherous in bad conditions. But if you take things slowly and sensibly, you'll be in your element. This is the ideal route for an unforgettable biking tour.
