What an awesome trip! The guys at Magellan went out of their way to make sure that we all had a great time, and some of the roads were epic, with scenery to match.

I would recommend the company to anyone and hope to be on another Magellan Tours trip again soon, just need to choose the itinerary!  Thanks again.

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’
