Motorcycling in the Harz Mountains

The Harz Mountains a paradise for bikers and motorbike enthusiasts

Anyone travelling to the Oberharz by motorbike will be thrilled on the way. Riding fun awaits you on delightful routes. Winding roads, little traffic, varied scenery - a motorcyclist's heart will rejoice.

Numerous motorbike bars and inns along the route invite you to take a long break. Whether you prefer to relax with a cool non-alcoholic beer and a hearty snack or prepare for the onward journey with coffee and cake is of course entirely up to you.

Torfhaus biker meeting point


In the Oberharz, motorcyclists can meet like-minded people on a number of mountain routes and at almost every car park along the mountain and valley routes. The biker meeting point in Torfhaus. At this large car park at an altitude of 812 metres - directly on the Bundesstraße 4 between Bad Harzburg and Braunlage - a large number of motorcyclists can be found every day.

A stop at one of the snack bars or restaurants is a must for motorcyclists on a Harz tour. The car park in Torfhaus is particularly popular with bikers at the weekend, as it offers a good view of the nearby Brocken.

Another popular biker meeting point in the Oberharz is the car park at the dam wall of the Oker dam. Over coffee and cake or currywurst and cola on the B498 road between Altenau and Goslar, you can take in the fantastic view of the imposing dam.
