Your Road Trip in Germany
Would you like to know when the ideal time is for a campervan road trip through Germany? Or maybe you want to visit a special event with your motorhome? We’ve put together a few tips for your camping holiday in Germany.
Driving in Germany
There are a few things to keep mind whilst driving with a campervan through Germany:
- On the autobahn (motorway), the speed limit is 130 km/h (80 mph) as well as stretches with no speed limit. Stick to the right lane if you are driving slower as the left lane is for people going very fast. Keep an eye out for reduced speed signs in construction area and at junctions on the autobahn. In urban areas, the speed limit is 50 km/h (30 mph).
- Some cities in Germany have implemented environmental zones, which restrict access to certain types of vehicles in an effort to reduce pollution. Be sure to check whether your campervan is allowed in these zones before entering the city.
- Right before left: traffic coming from the right takes priority at all crossroads and junctions.
- Passing other vehicles is only allowed on the left side on German roads and you can get fined if you overtake on the right side.
Camping in Germany
