Cycling

CyclingYou like to ride a bike? The bikeways around Freiburg are well signposted but an additional cycle map is always recommended. How about a bike ride around the Kaiserstuhl? The total distance is around 80 km from Haus Gisela and can be driven with a little planning without much incline. If that is too much maybe a tour to Breisach at Rhine, which is for the round-trip about 40 km. Bike tours are also possible along the river Rhine, back then perhaps parallel through the Markgraeflerland? Another easy tour with just under 50 km could be along the river Dreisam until Riegel, the river Elz along until Denzlingen, then back to Freiburg. The bike path along the Dreisam is also a good way with a small detour to ride without a lot of car traffic into the inner city. If you do not bring your own bike, my guests can rent bikes at a nearby bike shop.

Ride a Motorcycle

Motorrad fahrenThe Black Forest and the Alsace offer many opportunities to ride a motor bike. First, the legendary Schauinsland hillclimb route with 12 km of switchbacks. Unfortunately applies on weekends and holidays a ban on motorcycles. On other days, you should not miss this treat. Also nice is the driveway through the Glottertal or the small road that leads up to the mount Kandel nearby Waldkirch. A welcome alternative route for the arrival could be the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse starting from Baden-Baden instead of the highway A5.
