Your motorbike holiday in the Allgäu

We rev things up

The Allgäu offers almost everything you need for a holiday on your motorbike. Blue lakes and rugged mountains, lush forests and expansive meadows. And in between: roads with lots of twists and turns that are often devoid of people. The Allgäu and Bregenzerwald are a sheer paradise for motorbike riders.

Torghele’s tip: King Ludwig constructed his world-renowned Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Palaces not far from the hills of the Allgäu. The landscape really does nestle in a fairy-tale like manner. Always worth a visit, it is the roads and passes in the region which have plenty of twists and turns that attract motor sports fans in particular.

Topless

Nature, the landscape, sunshine and views can be experienced in many ways in the Allgäu. Yet barely any form is as speedy and at the same time so relaxing as driving a convertible. Fold down the cover and enjoy the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, heading up hill and downhill, along the winding roads. Numerous excursion destinations and refreshment stop options make your road trip an unforgettable experience of nature and culture.

'Bregenzer stade', Bregenz's waterfront area, was first mentioned in documents dating from 1294. The first testimonies from this time are also about a shipping pier. Since its origins in medieval times, the mooring area became a contemporary port, and has now been extensively re-built to accommodate the increasing numbers of visitors on land and on the water.

Traditionally commercial passenger boats operated several times a day from Easter until the middle of October, several times a day from Bregenz harbour to Constance via Lindau, Wasserburg, Nonnenhorn, Kressbronn, Langenargen, Friedrichshafen, Immenstaad, Hagnau, Meersburg and the island of Mainau.
