The Rückenwind Reisen App

The Rückenwind Travel App was developed to make it easier for you to find your way on our original Rückenwind tours and to prevent you from needing to look at the maps and detailed route description. The app is free and works on every smartphone (Android, iPhone).

We will happily provide you with the GPX-tracks for your booked ride and the GPS coordinates for your booked hotels for free. Just ask us to email them to you before your tour starts.

Important note: the maps are available in the offline mode to avoid you getting data charges.

Important notes
