Best of Europe - over but not forgotten! (BOE1201)

Monday, June 18, 2012 | Jens Ruprecht | Europe

Hello Bikers around the world,

Our "BEST OF EUROPE" Tour is on the road. We met last thursday in Munich, got our great motorcycles - and left to the North - Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Later on we continued through Heidelberg and yesterday we drove through the beautiful Black Forest before ending up in the Alsace region/France.

Here some impressions:

Eichstätt - great Stop for lunch...

Let´s go to Rothenburg...

BMW R 1200 GS - always a good choice!

Bavarian Biker girl on Honda 125 ccm - not too bad...

Rothenburg ob der Tauber - great medieval town - have a look:

and a little closer...

And after dinner - a walk with the original "Nightwatchman" - great guy!

From Rothenburg we continued further west, a first stop at Schöntal monastery, then a fabulous Picnic made by Harald at the romantic Jagst river. Great riding in this area - the Odenwald/Neckar region is perfect on a bike!

Stop at Castle "Langenburg"

Visiting Schöntal Monastery

really impressive inside...

and outside also... a lot of weddings take place here.

View from Hirschhorn Castle - great place for an Ice-Cream!

and finally we made it to Heidelberg - great place to be:

and our Hotel, about 400 years old - Hotel Ritter - right in the middle of the old town!

And then... down South - Black Forest is waiting for us - with incredible roads!

Ken in a "real Biker Bar"... and everybody is celebrating the Soccer European Championship - everywhere...

Somewhere in the Black Forest:

Classic Car Collection

At lake Mummelsee - a typical sunday morning...

Mexicans in the Black Forest...

Black Forest Beauties!

In the afternoon we had a great ride through the Black forest - it was so beatiful, that we had no time to take any pictures...turn after turn...

Finally we made it into France, here having a nice cold beer in front of our hotel in the Alsace region.


Okay, 2 nights in France - let´s go for a ride!

The roads in the Alsace region are fantastic - and the best - nearly no traffic... just great, have a look:

Along the road...

Coffee in Munster, home of the famous "Munster Cheese"

Great Scenery!

Another night in Ribeauville, then again through the Black Forest down to Switzerland... everything is so close...

Huge locks at the Rhine river, before entering the Black Forest.

Original Black Forest Cake - mmmmmmhhhh!

Cuckoo clocks all over... which one should I take?

The famous "Hexenlochmühle"

and finally we made it to the "Rhinefall", Schaffhausen(Switzerland)

Diessenhofen in the morning - nice and quiet...

and then on small roads through Switzerland to the "Säntis" Mountain.

Pablo and Peggy at the lake of Constance - today is Pablo´s Birthday!

Carolina in the Alps!

Riding in the Alps - what else do you need???

Let´s ride to Austria!

Just great! Somewhere on the way to Warth - Austria...

The last half an hour in the rain.... why?

and finally we made it to our great hotel - Jägeralpe!

A last day of great riding, before we get back to Munich...

Stop at lake Plansee, shortly before the border to Germany

Kings Ludwigs castle "Linderhof"

Weißwürstl at lake Staffelsee...... yummy! Our last stop before we made it back to Munich...

Thank you for a great trip!!!

Hope to see you somewhere else - on two wheels!

Jens and Harald
