Germany’s motorcyclists have voted: The ten most popular biker meets were selected out of a total of 650. Gold went to the Bikers Farm in Dülmen-Buldern (North Rhine-Westphalia). The leading industry magazine MOTORRAD and star petrol stations asked the readers of motorradonline.de, one of the largest motorcycle communities in Germany, for their choice.
The “Bikers Farm” in Münsterland (1st place) is a popular destination among motorcyclists due especially to its proximity to Lake Buldern. Many events with live music, regular barbecues and two large beer gardens also entice the bikers to Dülmen-Buldern. The “Klimperkasten” in Todtmoos (2nd place) is very popular among fans – above all due to the rock music and the videos of biker meets and hill climbs. The “Bikerhaus Waldblick” (3rd place) is located in the middle of the Black Forest and is an ideal starting point for touring in the direction of Northern or Southern Black Forest.
“We’re very pleased that the members of the community were so involved in voting. Motorcyclists are an important target group for us; we get involved with them in a variety of ways. For instance with our coffee-biker campaign, which is already in its third round this year,” explains Wieslaw Milkiewicz, managing director and spokesperson of ORLEN Deutschland GmbH. During the coffee-biker campaign, bikers receive a free cup of coffee at all participating star petrol stations over the entire weekend – from April to October.
These seven biker meets just missed the podium:
4. “PS Bistro” in Jühnsdorf (Brandenburg)
5. “Bike Inn” in Magdeburg (Sachsen-Anhalt)
6. “Biker-Motel Zur Schanze" in Apen/Holtgast (Lower Saxony)
7. “Gasthof-Hotel Zur Post” in Törwang (Bavaria)
￼8. “Alpenhotel Zum Ratsherrn” in Sonthofen (Bavaria)
9. “Engländer” in Heigenbrücken-Jakobsthal (Bavaria)
10. “Waldhaus Hollsand” in Uplengen-Großoldendorf (Lower Saxony).
Motorcycle fans will find many biker meets in addition to the top ten in the touring portal of MOTORRAD (www.motorradonline.de/bikertreff
). And of course new meets can also be set up here.
