A several hundred kilometre long Baltic Sea coast in the north, the alpine high mountains of the Tatra in the south, the legendary Krkonoše Mountains and the untouched Masurian Lake District are paradises for motorcyclists. Curves and hairpin bends in abundance and a well-developed road network guarantee lots of riding fun. And the cities also have a lot to offer. In the historic old towns of Krakow and Thorn you feel like you are transported back to the Middle Ages, Wroclaw and Gdansk are symbols of the country's eventful history. But unfortunately Poland does not have the best image. But as we know: travelling is fun and helps to break down prejudices. On our tour "South Poland: Giant Mountains & High Tatras" we already get to know a part of these sights and cities. And much more: Poland unites tradition and present in perfection. In addition, there is the proverbial hospitality that visitors are treated with at all stages of the tour. Poland is a country to fall in love with and never lets go once you have been here. Therefore, come with us and experience for yourself how lovable the mentality of the Poles is. The very special charm enchants everyone and the mostly very well developed tourist infrastructure offers a suitable framework.

-travel program:

Day 1: Vienna - Hirschberg / Jelenia Góra 430 km

At the agreed meeting point near Vienna you will start the trip with your German-speaking motorcycle guide. To get ahead faster you take the motorway deep into the Czech Republic and reach Poland in the late afternoon. Overnight stay in the Hirschberg area for the next 2 nights.

TIP for the journey 1:At the starting point of the journey near Vienna there is a hotel. For participants who have a further journey to Vienna, it is recommended to arrive the day before and stay overnight there. And if you want to come to the start of the tour with a car and motorcycle trailer, you can park the car at the hotel during the tour (subject to a fee).

TIP for arrival 2: If the journey to the start of the tour in Vienna would be a detour, come to the hotel in Hirschberg on your own and meet the group there.

Day 2: Day trip "Around the Schneekoppe" 220 km

The Krkonoše Mountains, where according to legend the mountain ghost Rübezahl is said to have done his mischief, are the highest part of the Sudeten mountain range with the Schneekoppe at 1,602 m peak height. Today's day will take you around the Krkonoše Mountains, so also a bit into the Czech Republic. Before you return to the hotel, you will stop briefly at the wooden stave church Wang, which was built in Norway in the 13th century and came here six centuries later as a gift from the German Emperor. It is considered to be the biggest tourist attraction in the Krkonoše Mountains. Second overnight stay in the Hirschberg area.

Day 3: Jelenia Góra - Wroclaw / Wrocław 180 km

You leave Hirschberg and the Krkonoše Mountains towards the east and cross the Landeshuter Kamm Landscape Park on your way to the heart of Silesia. In Wroclaw, your overnight stay today, you will already be expected by a local guide for the city tour. Wroclaw is the gröβte city in Lower Silesia and supposedly the most beautiful city in Poland. Its charm and atmosphere has been shaped by the culture of three nations. Trade and cultural life is flourishing on the market as it did a hundred years ago. Around the town hall there are many first-class restaurants with cosy beer gardens, in one of these nice restaurants you will enjoy your dinner.

Day 4: Wrocław - Cracow / Krakow 350 km

The journey continues through Silesia, partly via the motorway to avoid the densely populated areas around Breskau and Krakow. With Czestochowa you will visit the spiritual centre of Poland. Millions of pilgrims from all over the world are drawn to the Pauline Monastery every year, where the Polish national shrine, the picture of the Black Madonna, is kept. In the afternoon you will reach one of the world's most popular destinations for city walkers: Cracow. With a local guide you will take a walk through the city, which was the seat of the Polish kings and the capital of Poland until 1596. It is said that you cannot get to know the soul of the Polish without having visited Cracow. Overnight stay in Krakow.

Day 5: Wrocław - Zakopane 175 km

While riding along the small "Low Tatras", the Pieniński National Park with the up to 300 m deep gorge of the Dunajec River will delight you. In the early evening you reach Zakopane, the most famous winter sports resort in Poland, with a fantastic view of the mountains of the High Tatras. During a leisurely stroll through the highest city in Poland you will feel the very special flair of Zakopane, with its many distinctive wooden houses. Overnight stay for the next two nights in the Zakopane area.

Day 6: Day trip "High Tatras" 200 km

A comfortable day trip is on the program until you can enjoy the flair of Zakopane again in the evening. If you prefer to take a day off, you have a particularly good opportunity here, the pedestrian zone of Zakopane with its many shops will not let you get bored. Second overnight stay in the Zakopane area.

Day 7: Cracow - Bad Altheide/Polanica Zdroj 400 km

You will leave the alpine mountain world of the Tatra Mountains and head west again to your stage destination in the Glatzer Bergland. For part of the way, you will be back on the motorway to avoid the densely populated areas around the industrial city of Katowice. The Glatzer Bergland is known for its health resorts with Italian flair. Polanica Zdroj, in German Bad Altheide, is one of these spas in classic style and you will certainly like it. Here you will spend the next two nights.

Day 8: Day circuit in the Glatzer Bergland 210 km

On a winding day trip here in the Polish-Czech border area you will enjoy a last common Fahrtag
in Poland with impressive landscape

Day 9: Polanica Zdroj - Vienna 370 km

It's goodbye. With a lot of nice memories in your luggage you are on your way home. As the bikes are faster than the support vehicle, some take their luggage with them or can pick it up later in the day at the Tourstart Hotel near Vienna. End of the tour.

TIP: If the route to Vienna would be a detour on your way home, you can already say goodbye to the other tour participants on departure from the hotel and make your own way home.

TIP: Extra nights in Vienna and/or in the last hotel in Poland or on the way home are possible on request! Please contact us here for an offer!
