Get in and start your roadtrip … from Munich
Big city with village character – In Munich, time passes by a little slower: Also called Bavarian coziness. A proper snack in the state capital is worth it, so why should you drive away?
What you shouldn’t miss in Munich:
- A liter of beer (A Maß) und a pretzl in the beer garden – the benchmark of coziness. If you don’t do that, you weren’t here!
- The Flaucher – probably Munich’s most beautiful section on the Isar. Barbecue, bathe and relax!
- The English Garden – Isar surfers, the fast Eisbach and numerous athletes. How about a round of slacklining before you start your roadtrip?
If you compare them with the Bavarians, they will be quite annoyed. However, the neighboring country in the south is ideal for a roadtrip from Munich. So rent your camper and move on to Austria!
Extravagance – is probably the headline that should be given to our capital. Anyone who rents a camping bus in Berlin is certainly not a slowpoke – therefore, Berlin is a good company. Before you leave Germany’s biggest metropolis behind and start your roadsurfer adventure, you should definitely stay a few more hours!
What you shouldn’t miss in Berlin:
- Friedrichshain, Prenzlauer Berg & Neukölln – trendy districts with charm and a spirit of new awakenings
- “Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap” at Mehringdamm – the “best doner kebab in the world”.
- The Spree – Whether on the river or next to it, it doesn’t matter: Just relax and enjoy!
Berlin is the perfect location for a roadtrip to Poland and the Baltic States. How about a stop in Warsaw, Gdansk or Lithuania?
...from Frankfurt am Main
Welcome to the Manhattan of Germany! The banker city in the middle of Germany has the reputation of a dreary high-rise landscape but beyond that a lot more to offer. It’s worth spending a few hours here and discovering our insider tips – Promised!

Honestly: Do you need a tip? Frankfurt is that centrally located that no matter in which direction you start, you will quickly reach your destination. What do you fancy? Sea and stiff breeze, good food in France, Mediterranean joie de vivre or Eastern European flair? No matter, the paths don’t take that long from Frankfurt.
Southern flair and fantastic wine: Choosing Stuttgart as starting point for your camper roadtrip is a brilliant idea. But it’s also worth taking a closer look at the city itself.

Freiburg – the city in the Breisgau. Mediterranean spring climate and a historic city center, what more could you ask for? You definitely have to linger here for one or two glasses of wine before you start your camping bus roadtrip.
What you shouldn’t miss in Freiburg:
- The so called “Schauinslandbahn” – the cable car gondola takes you up high. Once you reach the top, your gaze will wander over the Black Forest to Switzerland and France.
