Sauerland - Land of 1000 mountains

They still exist in the Sauerland: small streets with little traffic. And curves, as much as the biker's heart desires. The region advertises with the slogan "Land of 1000 mountains". Of course they are not as high as in the Alps, but that doesn't stop the fun of driving. Hilly forest and meadow landscapes, a relatively low traffic density and the many reservoirs offer the best conditions for beautiful motorcycle tours.

The borders of the Sauerland are not exactly defined. Roughly speaking, it lies in the triangle between Kassel, Dortmund and Siegen. Most of it belongs to North Rhine-Westphalia, a small part to Hesse.

The best time to travel is from April to October.

The maximum speed is 50 km/h in urban areas, 100 km/h outside urban areas and 130 km/h on motorways.

Motorcyclists are not required to carry warning vests and first aid kits.

Interesting routes and destinations are among others:

  • Sauerland beef sausage, "Rinderpümmel" (beef puree)
