Presentations on the main stage
Several greats from the European travel scene will be sharing their experiences on the main stage of the Travel Event. Dieter Schneider will kick things off on Friday evening. On Saturday, the legendary Joe Pichler will give a talk for the last time in his career as a motorcycle traveler.
Dieter Schneider - Fellows Ride
Life without a motorcycle is possible, but pointless
Dieter Schneider, who has been traveling all over the world on his motorcycle for eight years, tells us in words and pictures what he has learned for life on his travels. For him, the motorcycle is a vehicle for happiness and fun, but also a passion that creates suffering. You will experience an expedition into a life beyond the midlife crisis, with and on the motorcycle. Loosely based on an advertising slogan: "Make a Ride change your Life."
!!!For risks and side effects ask your dealer or screwdriver!!!!
A journey into the unknown
Pure adventure over 12,000 km: Renate and Joe Pichler roam the north of South America on their KTM. What starts on Colombia's Andean tracks ends after a hot ride through the Amazon region on the coast of Brazil... and a huge backpack full of uncertainty as a faithful companion always with them. Where do we go from here? Which borders are open to us? A real odyssey: exciting and respectful.
Apropoees end: After 376,000 km on the ROAD, 92 months in the motorcycle saddle and unbelievable 35 years on stage, one may also slowly think of an end. Or in other words: This lecture is the last one - but of course the most worth seeing!
More travel lectures on Friday
About Iceland to the end of the world
A Journey from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific
Imagine you are a canary in a comfortable and safe golden cage.
You have figured out how to open the door and you could fly out, into the unknown, into danger but also into adventure.
Renata and Dieter have dared exactly that. They left their comfort zone behind and traded it for a life of adventure on a motorcycle with daily challenges.
The two want to take you not only on the first part of their world trip from Iceland to Tierra del Fuego, but also on their inner life journey.
In the evening, the stage becomes a hot spot when live bands get the motorcyclists up to operating temperature with groovy music. At the campfire there is the opportunity to get into conversation with like-minded people.
"ME'N`SA acoustic", that is MiS woman power. Melanie & Saskia present honest, passionately played acoustic music from rock & pop. As a duo they present well-known pieces in their very own way. The individual voice colors of the musicians and the instrumentation reduced to the essentials result in this very special live flair that characterizes ME'N'SA acoustic.
An exciting mix of strong instrumentalists and a front woman with a curly head and a power voice: that's the Spacek-Paglia band.
The formation of these five promises great musical cinema and an extra portion of fun on the journey through rock history.
Acoustic Breeze are five accomplished musicians who bring their experience from partly different music genres. What more do they need to present old songs in a new guise and new rock and pop in their own sound.
With polyphonic vocals, two guitars tuned to each other, an earthy bass, groovy drums and a wide repertoire, they provide a concert with earworm guarantee.

Nothing is better than riding a machine yourself
Since nothing is better for motorcycle travellers than to ride a machine themselves, there will be plenty of opportunities to ride at the Touratech Travel Event. Of course, bikers can simply join forces spontaneously and go for a spin through the hilly landscape around Niedereschach. But if you want to get to know the real insider tips from the locals, then you should join one of the guided tours.
Experienced Black Forest guides are looking forward to riding their favourite routes and sharing delicacies, home trails and insider tips with you again. Each tour lasts between 4 and 5 hours in total, small breaks are planned, but no major stops. However, your tour guides are so flexible and so familiar with the area that they are sure to be able to fulfil any wishes for a Black Forest cake stop or a cuckoo clock photo.
Exclusive guided tours with MOTORRAD and RIDE will also take place.
First offroad experience
Experienced instructors are looking forward to starting with you in Niedereschach, first negotiating a short course of bends and soon progressing to the nearby offroad terrain. Of course, the focus is on good vision skills, a favourable posture on the bike, balance as well as sensitive but also full braking.
