Special Event Tour
European Bike Week
This 11-day Reuthers Special Event Tour European Bike Week starts and ends in the Bavarian capital Munich and includes parts of our popular Alps & Lakes Tour. From Munich we start off heading towards Salzburg and Berchtesgaden, where we visit the famous Eagle's Nest and the salt mines of Bad Reichenhall. After a boats tour on the beautiful Königssee we are travelling further to Gmunden and to the Red Bull Ring. A visit to the biggest motorcycle event in Europe is lying ahead of us: The European Bike Week at the Faaker See. Here we stay for two nights to experience this amazing Harley-Davidson event. Our ride continues over serpentines towards the National Park Hohe Tauern to the Grossglockner at 2504 meters - this is a unique driving experience. But you reach even greater heights: with the cable car we are going up to the Zugspitze. Next highlight will be Neuschwanstein Castle for a historical castle tour, before you finish this exciting motorcycle tour in Munich.
Day 1: Munich (GER)
Welcome to Munich, the capital of Bavaria. After a transfer to your hotel, meet your fellow travellers with a welcome drink and dinner in the evening.
Day 2: Munich (GER) > Salzburg (AUT)
After collecting our Harley-Davidson motorycles from the rental office we begin our trip and travel to the Chiemsee, where we will stop for lunch. Our overnight stay is in Mozart's hometown Salzburg.
Day 3: Salzburg (AUT) > Berchtesgaden (GER)
First thing in the morning we will visit the saltmine, where the famous Bad Reichenhall brand salt originates. Deep down underneath the Salzberg mountain a secret world awaits us. For many years, only the salt miners in Berchtesgaden were allowed to enter the complex tunnel system. Next highlight of the day will be the so called Eagle's Nest, formerly Adolf Hitler's home and southern headquarters. We spend the night in Berchtesgaden at the foot of the Obersalzberg.
Day 4: Berchtesgaden (GER) > Gmunden (AUT)
Our ride continues to the Königssee, where a boat trip to the St. Bartholomä island and several other sights await us. While enjoying the spectacular Alps scenary, we will ride our Harleys along the Mondsee, Attersee and Traunsee to our overnight camp in Gmunden.
Day 5: Gmunden (AUT) > Fohnsdorf (AUT)

Today we visit the Red Bull Ring, a racetrack and adventure park to learn more about the Formula 1. We stay the night close by in Fohnsdorf.
Day 6: Fohnsdorf (AUT) > Villach (AUT)
Finally we will head to Villach to be close to the European Bike Week. Riders from all over the world are travelling to the Faaker See...
Day 7: Faaker See / Villach (AUT)
With more than 100.000 visitors each year, the European Bike Week is the biggest motorcycle event in Europe and we take part at the Grand Opening Party!
Day 8: Villach (AUT) > Zell am See(AUT)
After a long day - and an even longer night - we leave the Faaker See for more adventures in the Alps of Austria and Germany. For a good reason we will have our next overnight stay in Zell am See.
Day 9: Zell am See (AUT) > Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER)
On our longest day of this Motorcycle Tour, the most famous High Alpine Road leads us into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, to the highest mountain in Austria, the Grossglockner (3798m) and its glacier, the Pasterze. It is a driving and nature experience of a special kind on 48 kilometers of high alpine road with 36 bends and curves, and an altitude ascent of 2504 metres. We will pass a unique world of mountains with blossoming alpine meadows, fragrant mountain forests, massive cliffs and eternal ice at the foot of the Grossglockner, the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. After a Reuthers Roadside Lunch we continue over the Gerlospass to the Achensee and finally arrive at our destination Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Enjoy a Harley-Davidson ride to the Edelweiss Spitze / Bikers Nest on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road - recorded by Hermann Reuther in August 2011.
Day 10: Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER) > Kempten (GER)
In the morning we will enjoy another unforgettable experience up high on the roof of Germany, arriving by cable car. Further planned sightseeing is the highlight of the day, Neuschwanstein Castle. The shy King Ludwig II built the castle just for himself in order to withdraw from public life. Neuschwanstein is since 1886 one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles in Europe. We will stay the night near Kempten.
Day 11: Kempten (GER) > Munich (GER)
On our last day on the road we will ride back to Munich and pass the Starnberger See, the Ammersee and visit the monestry Kloster Andechs. We will return our Harley-Davidsons to the rental office and transfer to the hotel. In the evening we will get together for our traditional farewell dinner and reminisce over our shared motorcycle tour including the European Bike Week.
