For most motorcycle lovers, the winding roads in the High Black Forest with panoramic views are as dreamy as it gets. The high and panoramic roads lead through varied nature past rustic valleys, clear lakes and over sunny peaks.

Since many motorcycle enthusiasts are now drawn to the Black Forest in the summer, we ask that you drive considerately. The beautiful nature can be enjoyed much better at a lower speed anyway. You can look forward to a wonderful trip on your bike.
