 The Harz region of Germany contains some of the finest riding roads and scenery in Europe, a real cultural melting pot brimming over with medieval cobbled streets, timber framed buildings, magnificent castles all surrounded by the craggy peaks of the Harz Mountains and linked by beautiful, empty sweeping tarmac roads.

Often cited as Germany’s best kept secret, the Harz is a true biker paradise and we arrive just in time for the Walpurgis celebrations, when according to German folklore witches meet in the mountains to commune with the gods. Our tour doesn’t stop there, we also take you on down to the famous B500, ride through the Black Forest and experience the twisting roads and jaw dropping scenery of the Voges Mountains in Eastern France. What more could you ask for?

Harz Mountains Tour. Great trip, great roads, great company, great organisation….

My second tour this year with MMT. Throughly enjoyable and a great mix of characters, bikes and roads on both tours.

Well planned routes with a variety of road types. Great to have all the routes sent before the trip and downloaded onto the sat nav.

Route 500 is one of the most spectacular stretches through Germany’s Black Forest. It begins with a fast, sweeping road before descending into the deep forest. And with plenty of lay-bys along the way there’s time to stop off and soak up the views.

The final stretch leads to Baden Baden – the famous spa town – and with tight switchback turns and barriers along the route you could be forgiven for thinking you’re on a race track., voted number 1 in their 'top 10 best European driving destinations’
