Choosing to rent a car for a trip through Germany offers a far more varied adventure than is offered to those choosing to stay in the major cities like Berlin, Bremen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, or Hamburg. Not to say that these cities have nothing to offer, being vibrant cultural centres steeped in history that have been restored to their former glory over the last 65 years, leaving historic houses standing next to the modern skyscrapers that testify to Germany's place as a world business power. However, outside the cities lay vast forests, rolling hills and alpine pastures. The Black Forest is a globally renowned holiday destination, but a quieter region that offers similar scenery without the crowds can be found in the Harz Mountains. Winter sports resorts can be found in the Bavarian Alps, while the southern regions, including Lake Constance, make exceptional locations for a family activity holiday.
The City of Berlin – One of Europe's many great cities that offers something for everyone; Exceptional Architecture, world famous museums and galleries, historic monuments, fantastic shopping and dining, and a well documented, lively nightlife. And not forgetting its symbolic importance both as a divided city and the place where the wall came down, ending half a century of cold war. Truly, a city worth experiencing.
Stuttgart – A prosperous modern city, home to two famous festivals, one for wine and one for beer. Beyond that, there's the globally renown Staatsgalerie that heads up a lively cultural scene, and many opportunities for shopping and fine dining. Also nearby are the Esslingen Roman buildings, and the Ludwigsburg palaces and gardens from the 18th century.
The Black Forest – Perhaps Germany's best known holiday region, a land of fertile valleys, dark forests, watery gorges and spectacular mountain scenery. Countless picturesque villages nestle along the banks of the Danube and the Rhine, as they flow between lakes that shimmer beneath the distant Alps. Camping, walking, hiking, mountain-biking, or simply relaxing in the stunning surroundings are all popular pastimes for those taking either short breaks or family vacations.
