Tour Overview


After two successful BMW Motorrad Days in Berlin in 2022 and 2023, BMW Motorrad will continue the legendary format of the previous events this year.  The world’s largest BMW Motorrad meeting will return to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Alps. This is BMW Motorrad’s response to the heartfelt desire of its fans all over the world for unadulterated motorcycle culture, a party atmosphere and unique riding experiences against a breathtaking Alpine backdrop.


BMW’s annual celebration of all-things Motorrad has grown into a huge festival, with up to 40,000 guests.  Stunt shows, Beer Tents, Bikes, Clubs, Accessory Suppliers, Ride Outs and a great party – Motorrad Days has it all.  The festival moved to Berlin in 2022 and 2023 and was a huge success.  For 2024, Motorrad Days is moving again… to GARMISCH!!! 

For 2024 BMW Tours are offering a unique experience you can’t get anywhere else.  This tour is a proven favourite and every year we come up with new routes and new venues, but every year it proves to be hugely popular with many riders returning again and again!  There are two options again this year depending on whether you want to cross the channel from the North (Hull/Rotterdam) or from the South (Folkestone Eurotunnel).

Whichever crossing you opt for both routes eventually converge on the continent before spearheading into the Ardennes and the charming little City of Marche en Famenne.  Our four star hotel is only a short walk to the centre of this old town and its shady squares and numerous fountains.  The following day, we’ll skirt past Luxembourg and head south east. We take time to enjoy some fantastic motorcycling roads and stunning scenery en route to Strasbourg.  Our hotel sits just off the Grand Ile, the UNESCO listed heart of the city.

Our route continues the next day through the southern reaches of the Black Forest and into Bavaria.  We have included some unrestricted Autobahn stretches to get the miles done on this longer day and ensure you arrive fresh in the heart of Bavaria, Garmisch Partenkirchen.  Once the home to the winter Olympics, this small Fresco painted old town, will come alive once more, for the a new Motorrad Days Party Weekend.

At the Motorrad Days festival we will be based in another 4-star hotel, a short walk from the festival site offering the freedom to enjoy the party atmosphere. Alternatively you can join us on a range of exclusive ride outs to stunning Alpine passes, including the legendary Stelvio Pass.

Saturday night is party night and you’ll be our guest for dinner, along with a few steins of cold German beer!  The resident band will get you into the mood and onto your feet… so get ready to party!  The evening is legendary and goes on to the small hours.  Sunday is a day of rest (and recovery) before we head off for some more great riding on Monday.

The journey home is still an exciting ride, as we take up the challenge of the Black Forest proper and the infamous B500 to Baden Baden where, after a full days riding you can relax in our hotel in the centre of the town.  The centre of this charming Spa town is just a short (if downhill!) wander into the town where you can experience all that this vibrant Spa town has to offer.  Our final full days ride takes us back to Belgium following different routes into the Ardennes and our hotel in Bouillon, The hotel is located in the centre of this medieval town, overlooking the river Semoir and in the shadow of the Castle. A cold drink on the river bank is the order of the day! Then all that is left is the return ride to your chosen port – Calais or Rotterdam for your crossing to home.  

Unlike all our other tours this tour is NOT restricted to 12 bikes. We have reserved space for up to 100 riders to join the party!

Our first experience of World of BMW Tours and we were very impressed. From the time we arrived at Euro Tunnel to arriving back at Euro Tunnel the whole trip was very well organised and made life very easy for us to enjoy our holiday, hassle free with no problems. Would thoroughly recommend.
