Description

Every first weekend in September, the European Bike Week is a unique experience; in fact it is “our” european response to the previously called Black Hills Classic, today’s the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota/USA. If you can’t afford to travel to the USA, this is the unique alternative in Europe. Join over 100’000 Harley-Fans and see around 80’000 Harleys Davidson’s in various types, models, with various accessories and colours.Plus be the first in Europe to ride the first new Harley Davidson Models!

An area pulsates in the V-Twin-strokes

The event was launched in the first weekend in September 1998; it attracted then just around 15’000 fans and visitors. No one suspected what would come out of that and what impact it would have onto the region. Today over 100’000 people attend the event. Approximately 60’000 nights are booked each year and an estimated of ten million euros flows into the accounts of the local businesses. It’s a magnet that attracts, young and older women and men of all social classes and from various parts of the world and its the largest Harley Davidson meeting in Europe.

The parade takes place on Saturday and ends often late. Thousands of spectators along the parade route “battle” to get the best places in the front rows, closest to the road.

Easy comfortable ride to the Event with many attractions along the way.

We take the long way to the “V-Twin Mecca”. Along selected roads, away from mass-tourism and known only to locals, we ride to the castle of Neuschwanstein, Obermoos with a trip to the Zugspitze, then to Berchtesgaden over the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse, through National parks, over mountains and Alp-passes, with lots of must see sightseeing’s.
We reach lake Faak on the starting day of the Rally and may settle in a very luxurious, comfortable and exclusive 5* hotel and resort.

You’ll have various possibilities:
From taking a rest and enjoying life, having walks around the stunning nature with its lakes and forests, enjoying the hotel spa or its swimming pool, have massages, sauna, “shopping”, certainly dive into the Harley village and check the event merchandise, the dealer-trader and customizer areas, visit the Motodrom, while watching the countless people, join other riders and cruise around the lake to choose one or more day trip suggestions around the Lake Faak and neighbouring Italy and Slovenia.
The ride back home on the day after the Parade is shorter and direct with one overnight!
