Event Highlights

The fifth event in Rally the Globe’s well-received Carrera series will take us on a 10-day adventure through Southern Germany and Austria.

We start at the stunning Schloss Kronberg Hotel in the Taunus region, just a few kilometres from Frankfurt, where Scrutineering & Documentation will take place.

From there, we will head south through some wonderful countryside with quiet roads and interesting architecture, crossing the Rhine, before spending the night in historic Heidelberg. We reach the Black Forest, where we will spend a few days and stop for lunch in a hilltop castle.

We have two nights in Baiersbronn, allowing us the chance to explore more of the Black Forest National Park with a loop out from our hotel, and of course the obligatory stop to sample some of the world-famous local gateaux!

We then head south on a maze of roads which will challenge the navigators a little, before a beautiful, deserted, twisty road following a river leads us to lunch in an old mill. A test at a driving centre will be on the cards before we arrive at our splendid hotel on Lake Konstanz.

On route to the spa town of Bad Wörishofen, where we will also spend our rest day, we pass 12th Century Salem Castle and enter Bavaria in the Allgäu region. After a day of relaxation we head on to Grassau and can expect snow-capped mountains, bright blue lakes, covered wooden bridges and smooth, quiet country roads.

Finally, we will spend three nights in the mountains above Berchtesgaden from where we will explore the Alpine roads of the Austrian border region, including a visit to an impressive motor museum, panoramic views, FIA Mountain Championship roads and plenty of fine local food.

A mid-afternoon finish on the final day is planned back in Berchtesgaden, where the traditional Rally the Globe Gala Dinner and Prize-giving will be held to celebrate 10-days on the road together.

Expect magnificent views, spectacular smooth roads, five star hotels oozing luxury and character, local culinary surprises, plenty of convivial competition and camaraderie along the way – an event suitable for the most luxurious of cars.

There will be two or three Regularity sections each day on twisty but quiet minor roads. On most days there will be a Test on private land, test tracks and race circuits.

Roads used:

All-asphalt surfaces will be used. We use minor roads to explore areas that few tourists will ever see, some of which may be bumpy, but we go out of our way to avoid rough roads.


We will use top quality hotels and provide a group dinner most evenings, other than on non-driving and some other days. Lunches and coffee halts will also be provided in a variety of venues. We will provide a van to assist with transporting your luggage between hotels (sensible weight restrictions will apply).
