Campervan Trip through Germany
A holiday in Germany sounds boring? - Not at all! Holidays in Germany can be incredibly varied and exciting. And Germany is also quite popular as a travel destination. More and more Germans are spending their holidays in their own country. And rightly so. Germany is an incredibly diverse country. From beautiful beaches by the sea to fairytale cities and turquoise-blue mountain lakes, there's something for everyone. Do you love the sea? No problem: you're sure to love the German North Sea and Baltic Sea. Are you more of a mountain person? Then head to Bavaria and hike in the Alps. As you can see, Germany offers an incredible number of possibilities. And the best thing is: you don't have to choose when you travel through Germany in a campervan. You can explore all these places and decide every day what you feel like doing. Experience a different place every day and simply drive spontaneously to wherever you feel like it. Just rent a camper and start your journey!
Campervan hire in Germany: worth a trip at any time of year
Are you wondering when the best time is for your campervan holiday in Germany? That depends on what you want to experience. Generally, extreme temperatures are not to be expected in Germany. In the northwest of Germany - near the North Sea coast - the climate is rather mild, with a comparatively high amount of rain. The climate is similar on the Baltic Sea coast.
In the Rhineland near the cities of Düsseldorf, Cologne, and Bonn, winters tend to be mild and summers hot and dry. This part of Germany is one of the most pleasant temperature regions in the country.
The climate in eastern and central Germany is continental: this means - long and mild winters and dry and hot summers.
In the south of Germany - in the mountains - the winters are quite long and characterised by snowfall. Here, it can also quickly reach double-digit minus temperatures in winter. But in summer it can also be hot and dry here.
When is the best time to set off with a campervan? That depends on what kind of holiday you are planning. If you're travelling in summer, you can swim in lakes and the sea, hike in the mountains and sit in front of the campervan in the evening and enjoy a barbecue. But winter camping also has its appeal: in winter, there is not much going on in northern Germany, and a holiday on the North Sea and Baltic Sea in winter can be wonderfully relaxing. Or you can take your camper to the mountains in winter - for skiing or snowboarding

Renting a campervan? Tips for camping holidays
- One of the best things about camping is sitting outside at night, barbecuing, playing cards, and sitting together. Note, however, that even in summer, it can get quite cold at night. So remember to bring thick jumpers or jackets.
- What should I definitely take with me when I rent a camping vehicle? Our tips for what not to forget when camping: Be sure to bring bathing shoes so you can shower at campsites. A clothes hanger is also very useful for drying wet clothes and towels. It is also best to use microfibre towels. These dry faster than conventional terry towels.
- By the way, Germany has a great advantage as a travel destination: You don't have to pay tolls! In other countries, such a road trip can quickly become expensive.
