Routing service that generates scenic motorcycle routes

Kurviger is a motorcycle route planner based on GraphHopper. Kurviger (German for more curvy or curvier) favors curvy roads that include elevation while avoiding cities and highways. Kurviger is capable of calculating roundtrips using a given distance and optionally a heading. Kurviger is available as website and Android app.

Kurviger App

The Kurviger App is available as Pro version and Free version. The Free version offers all the features you already love from the website. Plan round-trips, find winding roads, import and export routes, and, as a bonus, there's a guide-me mode, supporting you as you follow the route just created. The Pro version adds a fully functional turn-by-turn navigation, offline maps, and a lot more on top of that.


Motorcycle Contributions to OSM

Most routing software tries to find the fastest way to the motorway and route along the motorway. Kurviger however, tries to use curvy backcountry roads where possible. Also, Kurviger enforces motorcycle access rules and not car access rules. Due to that we find a lot of minor issues in the OSM data that might not be found by other routers.

Points of Interest (POI)

Kurviger uses OSM data to show POIs. We show amenity=fuel, amenity=motorcycle_parking, shop=motorcycle, shop=motorcycle_repair, tourism=attraction, tourism=picnic_site, tourism=viewpoint, and mountain_pass=yes. In addition we also show relevant tags of these elements, like the name, opening_hours, ele, motorcycle service tags like motorcycle:sales=* and motorcycle:rental=* and many more. There is a direct link in every POI pop-up that leads to the corresponding OSM node/way to make improving the data easier for users of Kurviger. The data is updated weekly.


Usage of the API

The Kurviger API is available as part of the GraphHopper API. This makes it easy to set up a motorcycle routing or navigation application. More information can be found in the Kurviger Wiki or in the GraphHopper Directions API documentation. Feel free to contact Kurviger or GraphHopper and we will set up a matching plan for your needs.
