Germany by Motorcycle

As well as the birthplace of the motorcar, Germany is also the home of the motorcycle. In 1894 the first production motorcycle was built in Germany, and some of the finest models in the world are still manufactured here today.
Enjoy the freedom of two wheels all over the country - on winding roads in the hills or on a tour of picture-postcard towns with their narrow alleyways. Combine the thrill of the open road with cultural attractions and natural beauty - take a trip through Germany by  motorcycle along one of the many themed scenic routes or just ride on into the blue.
