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
Language: This offer is usually suitable for English and/or German speaking participants. We will gladly provide binding information upon request.
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

Ride the most beautiful passes of Romania - the Transfagaras, the Transalpina, the Alpina of the Banat, the Donaudefileé and some nice roads in between.

Besides, there are still a few small sightseeings to be done. The daily stages are chosen in such a way that it becomes a tour for every hobby rider and no "motor sport event", on which one falls daily in the evening dead tiredly exhausted in the bed, it should be a vacation.

Start of the tour is directly in Romania / Timisoara. So you could also arrive with car and trailer or transporter - between Vienna and Timisoara is pure highway. You can park your car safely in Timisoara during your holiday (for a fee - approx. 25,-€ per parking space for the whole week, secured, locked, guarded).

Of course, you will get a precise roadbook for each day, which will guide you exactly to the hotel (in paper and gpx format).

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. Everybody does this boring necessity in his own way - whether fast and continuously or slowly with many breaks. In any case, you should arrive in Timisoara without any problems around 17.00 hrs 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 des 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. 15,-€ p.p. if available) and visit the famous king Decebal carved in stone. Afterwards you will ride a few kilometers along the Danube defile and stop at the monastery of Tismana (you have to see at least one monastery in Romania, some people even travel here just for the monasteries). At the day's destination Targu Jiu you can either admire the artworks of the world famous artist Brancusi or relax at the hotel - a top restaurant with shady terraces awaits you there!

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 Urdele pass. It is the highest pass in the Carpathians and guarantees fantastic distant views and unforgettable impressions.

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

Day 5

Ride 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 to your heart's content with Romanian sights and souvenirs. In the evening you can stroll around the town.

Day 6

Ride Bran - Sibiu

Daily distance approx. 270km

Today you will ride the most famous pass in 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 sumptuous farmer's picnic on the mountain (all specialties from the local farmers). Your destination for the day is Sibiu, one of Romania's cultural centers. An evening stroll through the city will convince you of this!

Day 7

Ride Sibiu - Timisoara

Daily distance approx. 280 km

Today we ride back to Timisoara over slightly curvy foothills of the Carpathians. We recommend to visit the city centre as well, 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 has begun, it ends - ride home from Timisoara to Vienna via the motorway.
