More details
You want to travel by car & trailer or van to the first hotel and park there for two weeks? No problem - let me know!
The single-room supplement is not exactly small. The reason is that in Romania, like in the USA, room prices are charged instead of prices per person (but at least they are "normal" large double rooms for single use).
Recommended travel dates: any time in July and August
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

The daily stages are chosen in a way that it will be a tour for every hobby motorcycles and not a "motor sport event" where you fall into bed dead tired every evening.

Start of the tour is directly in Romania / Timisoara. So you could also arrive by car and trailer or transporter - between Vienna and Timisoara there is only motorway. Cars can be parked safely in Timisoara in the hotel during your holiday (please make an appointment in advance).

You will of course receive a road book for this day, which will guide you exactly to the hotel.

Day 1

Vienna - Timisoara

Daily distance approx. 550 km

Today is dedicated to the journey to Romania - you are on the motorway the whole time. This boring necessity is done by everyone in his own way - whether fast and continuous or slow with many breaks. In any case, you should arrive in Timisoara around 17.00 o'clock without any problems and can still enjoy the amenities of our wellness hotel (pool, sauna, ...).

Day 2

Timisoara - Eselnita

Daily distance approx. 250 km

On the first day you will be spoiled with a little orgy of curves. The "Transalpina of the Banat" is not nearly as high as its big sister of the same name, which you will still ride, but it is much more curvy. So the tour starts right away, as a motorcyclist can only wish. The day's destination is a fantastic hotel right next to the Danube at the Iron Gate.

Day 3

Eselnita - Targu Jiu

Daily distance approx. 200 km

In the morning you can take a boat trip at the Iron Gate (approx. 10,-€ p.p. if available) and visit the famous stone carved king Decebal. Afterwards you will ride a few kilometers along the Danube Fillee' and stop at the monastery Tismana (at least one monastery must be seen in Romania, some even travel here just for the monasteries). At the day's destination Targu Jiu you can either admire the works of the world-famous artist Brancusi or relax in the hotel at a beautiful pool landscape. There is also a top restaurant waiting for you!

Day 4

Targu Jiu - Sibiel

Daily distance approx. 220 km

Another dream day in every biker's life - "Big Mama" is waiting for you - the Transalpina and the famous Pass Urdele. It is the highest pass in the Carpathians and guarantees fantastic views and unforgettable impressions.

In the evening the next highlight - you spend the night in the small village of Sibiel on a farm. For dinner we invite you to a typical Romanian evening with country specialities, wine and schnapps - the farmer's wife cooks for you personally! (included in the price!)

Day 5

Trip Sibiel - Bran

Daily distance approx. 220 km

Over beautiful country roads and a small pass it goes to the DRACULA CASTLE of Romania - Bran Castle. In the merchant village at the foot of the castle you can stock up on Romanian sights and souvenirs to your heart's content. In the evening you can either stroll around the town or relax in the pool for tomorrow's day

Day 6

Trip Bran - Sibiu

Daily distance approx. 270km

Today you ride the most famous pass of Romania - the Transfagaras. Unbelievable impressions are waiting for you, which can hardly be captured on photos, a must in the life of every motorcyclist! For lunch we recommend a lavish farmer's picnic on the mountain (all specialties from the local farmers). Your day's destination is Sibiu, one of Romania's cultural centres. An evening stroll through the city will convince you!

Day 7

Ride Sibiu - Timisoara

Daily distance approx. 280 km

Over slightly curvy foothills of the Carpathians we return today to Timisoara. We also recommend to visit the city centre, because "Little Vienna", as it is called, is also one of the most beautiful cities of the country.

Day 8

Timisoara - Vienna

Daily distance approx. 550 km

As it began, it ends - riding home from Timisoara to Vienna via the motorway.

Well, that's that!
