When you hire a campervan in Hanover you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a coffee pot, plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from Hanover you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the roadsurfer station. Full details of what’s included in your motorhome hire, and our suggestions on what to bring along to your Hanover campervan holiday can be found in the equipment list.
The best time to travel to Hanover with a campervan rental is the warm months between May and September. We highly recommend these months for car lovers as this city hosts many special automotive events. Keep an eye out for the VW Bus Festival, the Beetle Sunshine Tour, the Bulli Festival and the Street Mag Show, Germany’s largest American Car & Harley Show. In May, you can also visit the Arts Festivals and be entertained by music, performances, theatre, dance and installations at various venues around the city. The warm weather lures visitors outdoors, and many more come to view monthly firework competitions taking place at the Herrenhausen Gardens.
There is a campervan site in Hanover North where you can fill up the fresh water tank of your motorhome as well as empty the grey water on your return journey. You can also use the supply and disposal station without booking a pitch.
