Germany’s Black Forest Adventure
Deep in the heart of Germany’s Black Forest you will find Route 500, a 31 mile pass that will take you through a series of winding and exciting roads from Freudenstadt to Baden-Baden. Throughout the journey you will sweep through speedy sections and countless bends as you cut through the forest and the mountains within it. During this 1 hour section of road you will be treated to some glorious scenery and plenty of places to stop off for a photograph. If you want to enjoy this route at its quietest time then aim to get away as early as possible.
Exploring The Scottish Cairngorms
Scotland has some of the finest countryside that you are likely to find in Europe with thick and green forests interspersed with lakes, rivers and rugged landscapes. What better way to explore the beautiful Scottish countryside then than cutting through it on what is considered to be the best driving road in the British Isles, the A93 or the Old Military road as it is often referred to. This road slices through the Cairngorms National Park and aside from the breathtaking scenery which you will see as you drive, you will also be treated to a road with ups, downs and tight bends for you to navigate as you try to take in the views.
If you are looking for a road trip which does not only offer a feast for the eyes but also one which will test your driving, the Stelvio Pass in Italy is where you should go. This 30 mile stretch is by far and away one of the most theatrical roads in Europe and as you take in the splendour of both the Swiss and the Italian Alps, you will be driving on a route with 48 hairpin bends as you climb to the top of the mountains before sloping back down with one of the most awe-inspiring views of natural beauty which you are likely to find anywhere in the continent.
Here is a little bit more about some of the roads which you can experience throughout Europe.
