Motorbiking fun without limits
If you plan a day trip to Germany, the Hochtannberg Pass and Germany's highest pass road, the Riedberg Pass, should not be missed. On a trip to Switzerland, the Flüela, the Ofen and the wonderful Umbrail passes are tempting. Many of South Tyrol's motorcycling highlights can also be reached from the Tyrol. For example, the 2,757 meter high Stelvio Pass, the second highest accessible pass in the entire Alps. But also the Jaufenpass and the Reschensee, with its church tower rising out of the water, can be experienced on unforgettable day trips. Or how about a visit to Lake Constance? With the ride over the Arlberg Pass, an orgy of curves over the Furkajoch and the pleasure of the smallest road on the Pfänder, the Swabian Sea is reached in a grandiose way. A gigantic view of the huge body of water in the border triangle A-D-CH will be remembered for a long time.
