Vosges and Black Forest by Scooter 2VO

France   |  Germany

An Edelweiss Scooter Touring Center in the French Alsace Region and the Black Forest.

Beautiful roads around softly rolling hills, forested mountains, picturesque villages full of half-timbered houses and countless vineyards – that’s what you can expect on this tour. Every riding day is different, but we’ll always return to the same base hotel. No packing and unpacking every day.

The Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg sits in a strategic location, high up on a cliff above the Upper Rhine Valley. This is the region’s most famous castle and of course we are going to visit it.

One important French word you will learn on this tour is “Col”, meaning mountain pass. There are many great “cols” on our itinerary and also the famous Route des Crêtes, a panoramic road that features stunning scenery. One of our riding routes will lead us across the border to Germany, into the world-famous Black Forest. More beautiful scenery, great riding and lovingly restored old towns are to be found here. Amazing!

Scooter Tour Vosges and Black Forest

Thanks Edelweiss for another great scooter tour. Led expertly by Pablo, we travelled happily on our red Vespas along mountain roads and passes and through beautiful medieval villages and vineyards. We ate Black Forest Gateau in the Black Forest and had a wine tasting in the vineyard next to our hotel. It was a very varied and enjoyable trip - we think one of the best!
