Question German scenic road, Baltic Ocean-Alps

Hi fellow inmates,

I'm looking for the route of the German scenic road that goes from the Baltic Ocean to the Alps ("Deutsche Ferienroute Alpen-Ostsee", DFAO). I found hundreds of references that say that it's 1738km long but other than that I haven't found any specifics in the net. I already contacted the ADAC but haven't heard from them yet.

So any help in terms of tracks, routes, POIs or links etc. are very welcome.

I'm not sure, you probably have seen these links before, so just in case you have not....

Take care

Dum Spiro Spero!

Trouble is, the wikipedia article (and the pic of the route) make it impossible to deduct the correct route. There just aren't any specifics.

OSM only shows a few small stretches of the road (or I'm completely not understanding OSM) and the book at amazon isn't available any more.

However, this is probably the best way to go: Trying to get a used copy of that book.

I am new here in on the ADV-Forum and my english is very bad. Perhaps I can help to find the route, but I can’t give you any GPS-tracks.
You go to In the middle of this site is a field “AUF DER KARTE ZEIGEN” There you write in Adresse -> Berchdesgarden and Deutschland. After this you klick SUCHEN. Take number1 and the map open. On the left side you can make the map bigger or smaller with the + and – buttens. Go once of -. On the map you see a street from Berchdesgarden to Traunstein. Near the street where little black points. This is the Street which you search. Now you must follow the street – Seebruck – Wasserburg and so on. Sometimes you see in green letters Deutsche Ferienstrasse Alpen – Ostsee in the map. Good luck.

Thanks for the help!

@Dikki: The Michelin Map is great - It shows the route clearly. So now I can lay down some serious tracks

@Fin_Timo: The Alpenstrasse is a different route than the DFAO. However, I am grateful for the link because I am planning on riding this one too.

Deutsche Ferienroute Alpen-Ostsee

The michelin map is pretty good. I am sure that I could figure it out based on that map but if you have already done the work of putting it into a file, that would save tons of time. When you are finished with the map, is there any way that you could share it with us? I would greatly appreciate it!
