    I have spent a lot of time in Bavaria, but camping and cycling many years ago, we hope to take our Hymer back home to Germany next year.

    The stellplatze network is superb, there are loads enroute and the facilities that are available are as good as anything you will find in France. The German tourist board is very efficient, one email to them will get you a a ton of brochures and maps etc.

    You have probably seen this.. https://www.romantischestrasse.de/?lang=uk

    It also gives some campsites along the way http://www.romantischestrasse.de/showpage.php?SiteID=188&lang=uk

    Just looking back at that site and i am jealous of your adventure. Have a great trip, :thumb:

    Hi Bollard,

    Jim's advice above is spot on. Of our three trips to Germany, not once did we stay on a camp site due to the Stellplatz network being so big and very efficient, plus the fact that we moved on every day or two.

    We did most but not all of the Romantic Road, and it was very pleasant indeed, with old medieval walled towns, which you could walk round using an elevated walkway.

    There is also the Fairy Tale Road

    And some more scenic routes

    It's a great country to visit, and their Weissbier Dunkel is to die for. :thumb:

    Have a great time.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    We are going to Germany next week for an ALLRAD show (exhibition for off road type trucks) From there we are hopefully doing the Romantic Route, because the show is near Wurzburg and that happens to be the start of the route. Thanks for the links Jim and Jock, I am sure Neil will sup some of that beer.
