    German Alpine Route

    Hi Everyone, three of us are off in May for an 8 day trip from the Hook of Holland through to Germany and into Austria and then staying at the Grizzly Motorrad Hotel for 3 days. We're taking in the "German Alpine Route", we've never done it but of course done lots of online and Youtube research, it looks fantastic and hopefully will make for a great days riding and filming etc. Has anyone on here ridden it and got any don't miss nuggets they'd like to share? Really looking for that WOW view point or the perfect cafe/lunch stop. Below is the route I've planned which I know skips some of the route at the end but the Grizzly Hotel beckons us south. Can't wait and just hope Putin doesn't throw a spoiler.

    I have not done it all in one go but would like to do so. I have done sections of it on the way to somewhere else like you plan to do.

    By chopping off the last bit you are missing out on the Konigssee section which is very scenic. I wouldn't worry about missing out on Berchtesgaden.

    Your base hotel looks to be in a great location. The road you will take that runs parallel with the A10 motorway, the B99 is fantastic, over Obertaurn. Hopefully the hotel package will include a tourist pass that gets you over some of the Alpine toll roads for free or at a discount. Nochalmstrasse is just to the south and a really nice ride. You can also ride to the top of the Maltatal to the dam.  I stayed for a few days in a hotel at the bottom of this valley in Malta itself.

    I've just booked this place https://taubenhaus.at/en for mid-June. Our second day starts from Stuttgart, we'll drop down and pick up that route until we peel off for our Chalet. Our trip will include a day trip up the Grossglockner..

    Only words of wisdom I have is; it generally takes longer than you think it will.. :034: otherwise, enjoy and have a fantastic week. We need photos and a write up when you get back.  :028:

    Yep got a day planned for the Grossglockner from the Grizzly hotel and the figure of 8 route directly south. The BMW hotel gives discounted passes too, it looks looks super cool. I’m sure the view points & stops on the Alpine route will be very obvious. Taking a drone with me for the first time so there will be pics and a movie.  :028:
