In south-west Germany, the city of Mannheim welcomes its guests. If you want to rent a campervan, Mannheim is an ideal starting point. Situated on the Rhine and Neckar rivers, the city in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg offers numerous attractions worth seeing, such as the magnificent baroque castle or a grid-shaped city centre.
Campers renting a campervan from Mannheim can look forward to the hundreds of kilometres of the Burgenstraße and the proximity to the border triangle. This unites Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, making the Rhine-Neckar region rich in numerous excursion destinations in the surrounding area.
For local sightseeing, you can park your vehicle not far from the city centre, for example in Mannheim-Neuostheim or at the traditional campsite, which has the Mannheim lido as its neighbour. From here you can explore the Rhine-Neckar region and Mannheim's surrounding destinations.
On hot summer days, official bathing lakes and other bodies of water in the region provide the necessary cooling. Surrounded by green meadows and shallow shores, the Vogelstang Lake and the Kiefweiher pond, for example, invite families with children with campers in particular to splash around.
If you are looking for a change from the quiet camper life and long for city flair, you should pay a visit to the lively city of Frankfurt, just an hour's drive from Mannheim. Whether it's green hills and enchanting places like Königstein in the Taunus Mountains, Germany's only skyline or Mannheim itself: Renting a campervan in Mannheim is an unforgettable experience.
Probably the best-known tour with a campervan is the so-called Castle Road. A popular road trip leads from Mannheim to Prague and shows you fairytale towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The Castle Road itself stretches 1,400km along Germany's roads and - as the name suggests - takes you on a journey to the country's magnificent castles and palaces.
The road trip from Mannheim to Prague is around 1,190km long and takes you on numerous detours and past many green landscapes with pastures and fields. It passes more than 90 magnificent castles and palaces along the way, including Hornberg Castle, for example, the castle ruins in Heidelbar, which look out over wide green and blue high above the Neckar, and the extensive castle complex in Wetzingen. From the border, campervan travellers discover the beer city of Pilsen, Karlovy Vary and the largest enclosed castle area in the world in Prague.
Those interested in history pay a visit to the 18th-century baroque castle and marvel at historical exhibits. Stroll through the city centre laid out in a strict grid pattern and stop off at quaint German restaurants. Within the so-called Mannheim squares you will also find a baroque fountain monument including statues.
Let yourself be guided from the lively Planken pedestrian zone in the south-east of Mannheim to the water tower. The romantic tower was decorated with art nouveau elements and sits enthroned in the Friedrichsplatz gardens, the perfect place to relax after sightseeing. If you are in Germany during the hot season to rent a campervan, you should take a look at the lakes in the Mannheim area:
- Blue Adriatic and Kiefweiher in Ludwigshafen
- Rheinau Lake in the local recreation area between Brühl and Mannheim-Rheinau
- Vogelstang Lake in Baden-Württemberg
Half-timbered houses, cobbled streets and imposing town walls: The small town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber looks like something out of a Hans Christian Andersson fairytale. You can reach the German town by campervan in the north of Bavaria and it is mainly known for its visually appealing, medieval architecture.
Within the impressive city walls, stroll past many well-preserved towers and gatehouses. Cross the covered walkway above the wall and continue your stroll along the narrow cobbled streets. The medieval town hall offers its guests a unique view: it features a tower with a panoramic view.
Frankfurt is only an hour's drive from the starting point where you rent the camper. The seat of the European Central Bank welcomes you on the blue river Main. Formerly known as the home of Goethe, Frankfurt now houses an interesting museum in his former residence. In the city's interior, you can marvel at the impressive skyline.
Stroll along the large, cobblestone pedestrian zone around Frankfurt's Römer, the famous municipal town hall dating from 1405, which towers over the central square with its half-timbered style and balcony. A visit to the palm garden of the city of Frankfurt am Main is worthwhile and takes you to other climatic zones with its large greenhouses and well-tended flora and fauna from all over the world.
If you rent a campervan, you should also put this mountain range on your travel list. Seemingly endless, deep green forests and over twenty stops worth seeing attract camping enthusiasts to the Taunus Mountains. Picturesque villages such as Hessen and the Thuringian Forest can be found here.
Vineyards, picturesque villages and excellent cuisine on a trip with a camper van: the second longest tributary of the Rhine rises in France and attracts numerous guests - both travellers renting a camper van and locals - thanks to a colourful range of leisure and sports activities.
The Moselle has a length of around 550km. You will find many attractions on its banks and in the surrounding area: Stroll along the narrow, winding streets of Germany's oldest city, Trier, or discover the centre of Bernkastel, which consists almost entirely of old buildings. Imposing half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th centuries line the streets. Other popular destinations around the Moselle:
- Town of Trabel-Trarbach with Art Nouveau buildings and half-timbered houses
- Grevenburg Castle Ruin
- Wolf winegrowing village
- Zell on the Moselle
To get to Mannheim, travellers in a campervan have a few options. Nearby airports are located in Frankfurt am Main, Stuttgart and Baden-Baden, with Frankfurt being the most strategically located. However, Mannheim's main train station is not far from the city centre and can be reached from all major train stations in Germany.
Around 13,000km of motorway criss-cross Germany. In principle, there are no tolls for campervans, but there are some bridges or tunnels that require payment. Wild camping is not permitted in Germany. The locally regulated nature and forest protection laws usually stipulate that private individuals are allowed to enter as well as stay in the great outdoors, but no explicit permission is given to spend the night with the campervan.
Many campers who rent a camper van are lucky and are allowed to stay overnight. Absolute no-go zones for campervans, campers & co. can be private land and nature reserves as well as specially designated areas.
