Frankfurt, the perfect location – Central Germany
Renting a campervan in Frankfurt is the ideal starting point, because from there you can head for many interesting destinations within a 3-hour radius. For example, a trip to Würzburg or Aschaffenburg! Here you can visit the castle high above the Main river. Aschaffenburg is a very charming town with its narrow streets, the gigantic castle and the view over the Main. Würzburg is also fascinating and very close by. The city is also on the Main, where you can take a boat to Veithöchsheim. Here, there is a pleasure garden with a lake, a labyrinth and many beautiful, gravelled paths. An excursion by boat is always worthwhile. You can park your campervan near the city centre. There are also many campsites along the Main. But Bavaria is not the only place you should plan to visit if you want to hire a campervan in Frankfurt. Hessen itself also has a lot to offer.
The beautiful city of Marburg with its famous half-timbered houses is also just an under 2 hours’ drive away from Frankfurt. It is here in the Lahn Valley that you can discover the beautiful nature. The river meanders its way from Siegen down to Lahnstein, where it flows into the Rhine. The Lahn flows past numerous towns, not only through Marburg, but also Wetzlar, which lies directly on the banks of the beautiful river. If you want to hire a campervan in Frankfurt, then you should definitely take a trip through the Lahn Valley. Limburg and Weilburg are popular places to stay. The old town with its half-timbered houses is idyllic. There are also many small shops and street cafés here. The campstar station is only a few minutes away from the main railway station and is centrally located. Campervan hire in Frankfurt is super easy and you can plan your itinerary individually. You’ll never get bored here, as there are plenty of things to see in the region.

If you want to hire a campervan in Frankfurt, it’s also super easy to reach the city to pick up your vehicle. This is because there is an airport close to the city center, that probably the largest in Germany. The railway station is also very well connected all parts of Germany. This is ideal, because you can reach your destination in just a few hours. Fast trains (in German so called ICEs) depart here regularly in all directions. Be it from Bavaria, Thuringia or even the Baltic or North Sea. From here, you can set off in your campervan, because there is so much to see. Frankfurt lies almost entirely in the centre of Germany. Thuringia is not far away, Bavaria is only a stone’s throw away and Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate are only 2 hours away. Even in Hesse there are enough great sights to see: Bad Homburg with its spa gardens, the Rhön with the Wasserkuppe and Bad Orb, which is particularly worth seeing with its salt works, are just three of the places that are special here. The capital Wiesbaden is also worth a visit, with its Russian church, the Neroberg and the Opelbad (outdoor swimming pool) with probably the most beautiful view of all the swimming pools in Hesse.
