Motorbikes and my favourite route
My first motorbike was a Yamaha XT 600, which I acquired during my three years in the Saarland. After that I was too busy looking after the German national ski team to spend much time motorbiking. Then I met my wife, Helga and in 2005 we took over the hotel from my parents. Once the children were bigger I caught the motorbiking bug again, and I now own a KTM 1290, which means I am now in the enviable position of combining business with pleasure.
I really enjoy introducing my guests to the bendy roads of the Allgäu, culminating with the fabulous view down from the Pfänder over Lake Constance.
My favourite route is the road up to the Riedberg; on asphalt with one curve after another (motorbike slalom).
