Loop through Germany, July 2016

One week vacation filled with very different activities with friends in Berlin, on Nürburgring Norschleife race track and on some roads and locations in Germany. Weather was gread and I had a lot of fun.

And along the way I did 2278 miles (3667 km) on my bike - including 500 miles (800 km) on Nürburgring Nordschleife race track.

1 Berlin

Visiting friends means sightseeing.

First we climbed a historic gasometer in Berlin Schöneberg. The view in 80 meters height (260 ft) is quite impressive.

After the Berlin weekend I went to Nürburgring to attend a two day training on the legendary Nordschleife. I did 800 km (500 miles) in two days.

3 Mosel Rhine Danube tour

From Nürburgring I went on a Mosel Rhine Danube tour to Schwabmünchen to visit my friend Wolfgang. On my way I met Kurt of the KTM forum. He showed me around his area and some nice spots at river Danube.
