Follow the tracks of the world's first long distance road trip done by a brave woman
Bertha Benz was a brave and curious woman. This curiousity is inside of all of us and so we start with our 2-wheeler to explore exactly this track which drove Bertha Benz on 3 wheels (the first automobile!) together with her 3 sons. First we pass Baden, the region blessed by the sun and wine and enjoy a nice and winding roads while riding there.
In Pforzheim we actually access the historical track, which leads us via Bruchsal and Schwetzingen to Mannheim. We have a break at scenic and interesting spots, for the lunch break we choose a location around the famous water tower.
The historical track leads us in the afternoon to the Carl-Benz-Museum, and the visit there puts us back to the automobile world of around 100 years ago. Now we could much better imaging the world's first long distance road trip of Bertha Benz - that's what we think.
We go on cruising through the foothills of the Odenwald while we ask ourselves how Bertha Benz must managed her first trip more than 130 years ago. Riding through the Kraichgau area via Bruchsal to Karlsruhe and in Pforzheim the loop like Bertha Benz has done is finally complete. We speed up for a short while and cruising on our air filled tyres comfortable over the windy roads until we reach our starting point. For Berta Benz this trip for sure was much more exhausting, but also the same exciting and full of expressions.
