Romantic Road to the Black Forest

In Germany the freewheeling experience becomes more challenging with driving on the right hand side of the road. Don’t be put off, roads and autobahns are well surfaced and clearly signposted. Most major roads do have tolls so it is often cheaper and more scenic to stay on the secondary roads.

Marvel at the Bavarian landscapes half-timbered chalets and magnificent castles with alpine foothills forming a stunning backdrop along the Romantic road. Meander from Frankfurt to Munich, pass scenery mirrored in Lake Constance and explore the enchanting Black Forest, straight out of Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a compact size car for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.
