On your 10-day Self Drive motorcycle tour through the Alps, you can experience the panoramic mountain scenery from the saddle of a Harley-Davidson or BMW motorcyle. From the Bavarian capital Munich we start off heading towards Salzburg and Berchtesgaden, where we visit the famous salt mines of Bad Reichenhall.
