New Website For Heinz Stücke

Heinz StuckeHeinz Stücke, perhaps the world’s most famous bike tourist, with nearly 600,000km under his wheels, has a new website.

On you can read about his life, listen to an excerpt of a BBC radio interview, get his impressions about the countries where he’s travelled and see photographs from this epic 48-year journey.

More will be added to the website over the coming weeks, including about 3,000 slides which have yet to be scanned.

This video is also included on the new website. If you want to know even more about Heinz Stücke, you can also read or listen to the interview we did with him in February 2010.

    I was lucky I met Heinz in Vietnam 2012.
    He is now back home, after 51 years….wow…it must be very tough going back home after such a long time !!!
    In the German newspaper he mentioned he felt really sick crossing the border and coming back home to his little village were he hasn’t been for to entire time !!!

    Good on you Heinz, I wish you all the best !!!

    Cheers Heike
