About this region
Solothurn ( SOH-lə-toorn, ZOH-, German: [ˈzoːlotʊrn] (listen); French: Soleure [sɔlœʁ]; Italian: Soletta [soˈletːa]; Romansh: Soloturn) is a town, a municipality, and the capital of the canton of Solothurn in Switzerland. It is located in the north-west of Switzerland on the banks of the Aare and on the foot of the Weissenstein Jura mountains. The town is the only municipality of the district of the same name. The town got its name from Salodurum, a Roman-era settlement. From 1530 to 1792 it was the seat of the French ambassador to Switzerland. The pedestrian-only old town was built between 1530 and 1792 and shows an impressive array of Baroque architecture, combining Italian Grandezza, French style, and Swiss ideas. The town has eighteen structures listed as heritage sites. Agriculture, once the dominant sector of employment, has become almost non-existent. Most people today are employed in manufacturing and education. The official language of Solothurn is (the Swiss variety of Standard) German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German dialect.

About this route collection
The Alps, a mountain range in Europe stretching from the French Mediterranean coast in the southwest to the Pannonian plain in the east, almost always guarantee beautiful routes. It can hardly be boring there. The many passes, views and variations in the landscape make the Alps a true motorcycle paradise. Driving around the Alps is really quite an experience. You have not yet passed one corner or the next one is coming. While climbing from the valley, see the landscape change from wooded slopes with splashing waterfalls to alpine meadows where there is no longer a tree and asphalt roads that cut the eternal snow. Arrived at the top of the mountain, enjoy phenomenal views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks, as if you were standing on the roof of the world.

The 7 routes of this collection lead you from Austria to the Netherlands via Italy, Switzerland, Germany and a few kilometers France. Various passes are visited, including the Tonale, the Gavia, the Stelvio, the St Gotthard, the Grimsel and so I can go on for a while. Each one of them is a pleasure to ride.
You would think that after the Alps the fun is over, but nothing could be further from the truth. From the Alps you drive through Switzerland into the Black Forest. You can enjoy yourself for a week in that area alone. From the Black Forest you drive to the Eifel, also a famous area among motorcyclists. Consider, for example, the busy Nürburgring.
The last part of the route is on the motorway, because then you have arrived in a non-interesting area: the Ruhr area. Busy, drab and gray. Reason to do this via the highway, then you will get through it quickly. Driving inside is not an issue here. You drive from one town into another, often with lots of traffic lights and correspondingly heavy traffic.

A few attractions are discussed per route in the review. These often tell something about the history of the area in which you are driving. Fun facts, quite educational. Often there are also indicated places where you can find some entertainment, for example a suspension bridge at a great height. You are completely free to visit these sights, you can of course also determine your own interesting points.
But the most important thing you've probably traveled to this area for is simply driving. And as mentioned above, you are in a true motorcycle paradise where the steering is fantastic!

Each route ends at a hotel. It is of course not an obligation to use these hotels, you can always find another place to stay in the area, you are completely free. However, my experience is that they are all simple but good hotels for a very reasonable price. They are known and can be booked via booking.com.

R01 - Innsbruck to Stelvio, 289km
R02 - Stelvio to Maccagno, 264km
R03 - Maccagno to Sisikon, 271km
