Motoring holidays in Germany, Driving Tips and Tourist Information for Germany

Everything for your holiday in Germany all on one site.

castle on the rhineGermany offers fantastic variety for those willing to venture further afield than the already popular major cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Bremen, although a visit to these vibrant centres makes for a great short break. German cities are steeped in history and those that were heavily bombed in the second World War have been mostly lovingly restored to their former glory, so the elegant historic houses of Germany's mercantile past sit alongside soaring skyscrapers testament to Germany's importance in the modern world.

The Black Forest is a lovely and deservedly popular tourist region, but for a less crowded experience try the Harz Mountains in central northern Germany.  In the far south Lake Constance is perfect for a family or activity holiday, with elegant resorts and all types of water sports. The winter sports enthusiast is catered for in the skii resorts of the Bavarian Alps, such as Garmisch Partenkirchen.
