Experience Germany - a country full of suprises awaits

Germany is a veritable sleeping giant in tourism terms. For most people, holidaying in Germany only ever comes to mind when they think of a Rhine cruise, a visit to a Christmas Market, or a visit to Munich's world-famous Oktoberfest. Obviously, all of these are great options and opportunities, but there is so much more to this fascinating country than just this limited choice. There are amazing cities, remote forests, and even beautiful beaches - even though they are at the other end of the country if you are thinking about some sort of two-centre arrangement with a trip to Austria.

If you are planning a driving tour to Austria, then logically, your most obvious route from the UK will take you across France and Belgium via Lille and Liege to Aachen, where you then head southwards through Wurzburg, Ingolstadt and down towards Munich. Then dependent on your target destination in Austria, you have different choices - off towards Garmisch-Partenkirchen and over the border above Seefeld, opening up the city of Innsbruck and heading westwards into the Voralberg and towards Bregenz. You can head almost directly south towards Rosenheim, and famous motorway junction, where you can head west in the direction of the Austrian border at Kufstein, or passed the historic Chiemsee Castle and onwards to Salzburg. A third option would be to drive almost due east towards the border town of Passau, where 3 rivers meet, including the mighty Danube, making it a popular starting point for many popular river cruise itineraries that will eventually head down through Linz, provincial capital city of Upper Austria, and further along the Danube, passed the historic monastery at Melk, and eventually arriving into Vienna.

As you head towards Austria, there are numerous places throughout Germany, where it would make sense to break your journey, either for an overnight stop or a couple of days when you can explore the surroundings a little better.

Austria and Germany are arch-rivals, but also friendly neighbours, so don't miss the opportunity of exploring them both. We'd love to show you how.
