The sources of the Danube and the mighty Rhine Falls will be among your goals. Of course, you will also explore the winding roads that are just waiting to be discovered. You’ll come across vineyards and winding forest stretches, and clear heights with incredible and distant views. Of course, stops are planned now and then to let your eyes wander or to make a photographer's heart beat faster.

Warning: This tour is highly addictive. By the end of the tour, it is probably only your sore backside that prevents you from having withdrawal symptoms.

Tour description:

Day 1: Individual arrival in Appenweier

If required, we pick up your rental motorcycle, get to know each other. Later today, we will have a tour briefing.

Day 2: Around the Northern Black Forest (valleys, wine, and heights)

A ride via Kappelrodeck and Sasbachwalden on the Baden Wine Road to Baden-Baden. Then via Gernsbach to the Roten Lache and back into the Murgtal to Forbach. Then onto Kaltenbronn, Baiersbronn, and Freudenstadt as further stops. Soon, you will come to the Kinzig Valley with its beautiful towns of Schiltach and Wolfach. Finally, you’ll ride over the Schönberg to Lahr and back on the wine route. Today’s Ride: about 240 km / 150 miles

Day 3: Via All Saints' Day to the devil's mill

Riding through the Rench and Lierbach valleys, you come to Allerheiligen with its monastery ruins and a waterfall before enjoying the curves and the view on the Black Forest High Road. The legendary Mummelsee, like the Schwarzenbachtalsperre, is worth a photo stop. On the way to the Teufelsmühle, you can stretch your legs during a short walk to the Teufelsloch, an interesting rock formation. Passing the Nagold Reservoir, you come to Freudenstadt and Bad Rippoldsau to return to the area via the Black Forest High Road. Today’s Ride: about: 240 km / 150 miles

Day 4: Through the Hexenloch to the Dasenstein Hex

Today you cross the northern and southern Black Forest. Via the Lochberg, Strittberg, and Gscheid, you reach Waldkirch, from where you see a highlight; the Kandel, from the north side. Your dream route continues, via St. Peter and St. Märgen, again with wonderful views. Next, you ride to Hexenloch, then to Dreistegen. Furtwangen, Prechtal and Wolftal are further stages before you wish the Hex vom Dasenstein a good evening in Kappelrodeck. Today’s Ride: about 260 km / 161 miles

Day 5: On the trail of the cuckoo clock

You can take it a bit easier on today’s tour and see what makes the Black Forest famous and popular. The plan for today is sightseeing. Through well-known wine towns such as Durbach and Zell-Weierbach, you come to Gengenbach, known for its closed medieval townscape. At the beginning of the Gutach Valley, you visit another notable highlight, the Vogtsbauernhof open-air museum. Soon afterward, you stop at the world's largest functioning cuckoo clock and look around to see what makes the eyes of the American and Asian guests light up: thousands of cuckoo clocks in various sizes and designs. After a short walk to the waterfalls in Triberg, you go to Furtwangen, where the history of the cuckoo clock is explained in its largest clock museum. Later, you’ll ride the B500, the panorama road, as it brings you to Titisee and Schluchsee, from where you will head to your 2nd base hotel. Today’s Ride: about 230 km / 143 miles

Day 6: To the sources of the Danube

Starting with the Brigach spring, you continue to the Martinskapelle, where the Breg, the second source river of the Danube, rises a little below the European watershed. Through the Bregtal, you get to Donaueschingen, where you take a look at the third source of the Danube. Along the river, you come to the Danube infiltration, where the Danube dries up almost completely in dry summers. Not far after that is the Danube surrounded by towering limestone walls. On the way back, you visit the largest spring in Germany, the Aachtopf, where the Danube water that has seeped away returns to the surface again. Today’s Ride: about 300 km / 186 miles

Day 7: The 8 thousand

You won’t believe it, a total of eight thousand plus meter passes in the Black Forest, and there’s plenty more. But today, you're going to ride the most beautiful 8 thousand meter peaks, or rather the ones with the most beautiful curves! So, to memorize, learn by heart, or simply melt in your mouth, here they are:

-Belchen 1414m (the most beautiful)

-Blue 1165m (the westernmost)

-Feldberg 1493m (the highest)

-Herzoghorn 1265m

-Schauinsland 1284m (with the fantastic view)

-Silberberg 1358m

-Stübenwasen 1386m

-Deadman 1321m (the most remote one)

Today’s tour description: curves, curves, views, curves, enjoy, wow! Today’s Ride: about 250 km / 155 miles

Day 8: Hegau, Lake Constance, and the Rhine Falls

After the volcanic landscape of the Hegau, you pay a visit to the Swabian Sea, take the ferry from Meersburg to Konstanz, ride along the Gnadensee and Untersee to the picturesque Swiss town of Stein am Rhein. Then continue to the imposing Rhine Falls, which invites you to stop. After the magnificent natural spectacle, you return to your base hotel. Today’s Ride: about 270 km / 168 miles

Day 9: To the saltpeters in the Hotzenwald

The valleys around the Hotzenwald are wildly romantic, deeply indented, ravine-like forest valleys with steep rock faces. Narrow streets wind their way between streams and rock faces. When the weather is nice, you will have a wonderful view over the Upper Rhine to the Swiss Alps. Today’s Ride: about 270 km / 168 miles

Day 10: Departure day

After around 2000 km (1,240 miles) in the saddle and many impressions (not just in the saddle), it's time to say goodbye, and everyone starts their journeys home. Riders with rental motorcycles will ride back to the rental company together.

But Psst, more is yet to be revealed, so just take a look!
