Frequently Asked Questions

About our routes

The routes are generally suited to all types of cars, motorbikes, and bicycles.

The routes are in principal also suitable for vans and small campers. Larger vehicles might also be able to navigate most of the routes, but their size wasn’t taken into consideration while planning the routes. Therefore, it must be expected that challenges will arise on the narrow and twisty roads.  

The routes primarily consist of single-lane and two-lane back roads in the countryside. Some routes include less well-maintained roads or (decent) gravel roads. It will be mentioned in the route description if gravel roads are included. They are also clearly marked on the maps.

You should note that we LOVE twisty roads. If you drive a vehicle that has trouble navigating such roads, you might find our routes frustrating. However, you can still get a lot of inspiration from our books to plan your own routes. 

The primary criterion for inclusion in our books is enjoyment on the road.

It takes countless hours to research and photograph each route, so I focus on the areas with the highest potential for an unforgettable day on the road.

The same logic applies to the roads. An exceptionally engaging and beautiful road will be included, even if it requires a detour.
On the other hand, main roads with lots of traffic will only be included if they are exceptionally beautiful or if there is no other suitable alternative. 

I aim to include a variety of roads in each route. Some wide and flowing roads, some small and twisty ones, roads through dense forests, roads through open fields, and roads along lakes or sea. Some sections will consist of narrow single lane roads that require a slower pace. These roads are often the most scenic and quiet, but they might not be enjoyable if you try to hustle a big and heavy car along these roads at high speed. Just adapt your speed to the circumstances and enjoy the drive! 

I try to avoid the roads with the worst surface quality, but generally, it is not a significant factor when planning the routes. Road surfaces change over time, for better or worse. My roadbooks should still be relevant ten years from now.

Gravel roads are only included where necessary and if they are in good condition. In most cases, they can be avoided with a slight detour. If any gravel roads are included in a route, this will be mentioned in the intro and clearly marked on the map.

One of the biggest challenges when creating routes is linking together all the best roads. Sometimes it is impossible to incorporate a nice road without creating strange loops, major detours, or routes that are too long.

It should be noted that the routes in my books reflect my personal opinions. I include the roads and areas that I believe are the most enjoyable. Not everyone will agree with my selection. You are very welcome to contact me if you feel that I have overlooked a certain area or road, so that I can (re-)consider them for future reprints or new editions. 

The Points of Interest (POI) in our books are a partial list of things to see and do in a particular area. It is a personal selection based on what I think like-minded enthusiasts and their travel companions will enjoy. In general, I try to mention all major Points of Interest in the vicinity of the routes. 
I intentionally leave out some (minor) POIs, so there is room for discovery. To me, discovering new and unexpected things is a key ingredient for every road trip.

You are very welcome to contact me if you feel that I have overlooked a certain POI, so that I can (re-)consider it for future reprints or new editions. 

For the most part, I suggest exclusive or interesting eateries and accomodations that are out of the ordinary. They should be memorable (in a positive way) and, thereby, become part of an unforgettable road trip experience. 

I visit at least some of the recommendations myself, but I also rely heavily on reviews from others. So, if you know of excellent places to stay or eat in the areas I am working on, please feel free to share these with me! 

Because the recommended eateries and accomodations are exclusive, interesting, and almost always popular, many of these places are on the higher end of the price scale and will require booking in advance. 

I try to limit the number of recommendations to 2-5 per route. After all, the main focus of our books are the roads. Therefore, I am aware that many excellent hotels, campsites, restaurants, and cafés will not make it on the list. 

I highly recommend sites/apps such as Tripadvisor,,, and if you are looking for an alternative to my recommendations. They are great for finding places to stay and eat, also last-minute. I use these apps myself on almost every single trip. 

If you are planning on spending the night in a van, camper, or tent, I recommend finding the best places to stay by using the Park4Night app. 

Navigating the routes

For illustrated instructions on how to use the navigation QR codes in our books, please download this guide:

For illustrated instructions on how to use KML-files with the Maps.Me app, please download this guide:


1. Download a navigation app that can read GPX files. We recommend Calimoto.  Calimoto is a paid subscription app, but Calimoto is free if you stick to 1 region. Choose this region wisely, to match the routes you want to drive! 

Alternatively, several navigation devices  (e.g. Garmin, TomTom) support GPX-files – download the GPX file to a PC and upload to your device using the instructions provided by the device manufacturer.  

2. Scan the QR code for the route you want to drive (if that doesn’t work, download another QR code app).


3. In the 360 NÜRBURG book. the QR code will automatically open the route in Calimoto (if you have this app). In our other roadbooks, you will get a pop-up that will allow you to save the GPX file to your device.


4. Locate the GPX file you saved on your device. Usually in the folder where downloads on your phone are automatically placed. Often called ‘Files’, ‘Recents’ or ‘Downloads’. I cannot provide support for finding the downloaded files. 


5. Select the file and choose to open it in the navigation app of your choice. 


6. The app should open and load the route. If not, please refer to the support pages for your app. 


PS: Alternatively, each book has an online download page where the GPX and KML files can be downloaded manually. Follow the instructions provided in the book to locate the download pages. The GPX or KML files must then be loaded into your favorite navigation app. 


PS2: Google Maps, Waze, and Apple Maps are not compatible with the complex GPX files in our books. This is due to their waypoint limitations. They will change the route significantly. 


PS3: Some customers choose to manually enter parts of a route into Google Maps because they are familiar with this system. They divide my routes into 3-5 chunks, which they try to match in Google Maps by creating waypoints. If you insist of using Google Maps, this is the best way to do it. 


The process is different for each app, device, and operating system. Therefore we cannot give  step-by-step instructions for manually uploading navigation files.

In most cases the app or device that you would like use will have a support page where you can find detailed instructions.

It is a known issue that some phones / QR code scanners cannot read the QR codes in our books. In this case, we recommend that you download a different QR code scanner via your app store. 

All QR codes have been tested on several telephones prior to publication, so we can guarantee that they worked at the time of release of the books. Due to technical reasons, we cannot guarantee that the QR codes will remain functional over time. 

If you can’t get the QR codes to work, it is also possible to download the GPX- and KML navigation files on our homepage. The download link is stated below each QR code. 

Unfortunately, these popular navigation apps limit the number of waypoints that can be included in a route. Therefore, they cannot handle the complex routes in our books. 

This is not a defect in our routes. The complexity of our routes is what ensures that you get to experience all the best roads, without being directed onto main roads, highways, or through busy cities. 

We recommend loading our routes into navigations apps that can handle this complexity. We currently recommend using Calimoto. It works perfectly, both on bikes and in cars. Calimoto is also compatible with Apple Carplay. 

Alternatively – as preferred by some of our customers – you can manually enter parts of the routes in Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze. They do this 3-5 times to cover the entire route. It is a bit time-consuming, but it is the best way to navigate our routes using these apps. 

We are considering to include simplified routes for use in Google Maps in future roadbooks.
