Cycling, hiking and motor cycling

Whether you want to cycle 25 kilometres along the Kinzigtal Cycle Route from Offenburg to Gengenbach or 60 kilometres between the River Rhine and the Black Forest: Ortenau is absolutely idea for cyclists in search of enjoyment.

And there’s also plenty for walkers to discover in the Ortenau region: The Ortenau Wine Path will take you from Offenburg 80 km parallel to the Baden Wine Route through vines and forest to Baden-Baden. Walkers can also pick out shorter stretches, of course, such as the Offenburg Wine Walk, the Kinzig Pilgrims’ Route or the “Hexenstein” path. But if you prefer to cycle, you can explore these routes on two wheels too.

All motorcyclists know: Biker tours in the Black Forest are legendary – full of bends and great slopes for motorcyclists. The little roads that wind up into the mountains are often more like Alpine mountain roads. In addition, the Black Forest also provides motor cyclists with endless panoramic views across mountain gorges and valleys.

Whether you arrive by car, motorbike or rail, the Hotel Sonne is the ideal starting point: we’re just 5 minutes from the motorway and it’s just a short 10-minute walk from the station through the historic Old Town.

We offer free parking for motorcycles and bicycles in our garage (please book beforehand). There is also a motorbike washing area and a drying room for wet motorcycling gear.

So, whether you choose to explore the Black Forest by bicycle or on a motorbike, you’ll see: Offenburg is the ideal starting point.

Spend the night in a “piece of history”, enjoy breakfast in our historic inner courtyard (weather permitting) and then set off, relaxed and fortified, on a day filled with adventure.

We offer special prices for longer stays (from 5 nights) and larger groups.
