Although Germany's excellent rail system can take you to most parts of the country, it can't take you everywhere and you may want to use a car for part of your travel in Germany. For driving or road enthusiasts, the Autobahn is an attraction in itself. Driving in Germany is a pleasure as the roads are in excellent condition and the drivers are well-trained and cooperative-- just as long as you follow the rules. Here you will find a complete digest of those rules as well as information on renting a car in Germany, general information on touring and the highway network, a special section on the Autobahn, and a comprehensive collection of traffic signs and signals.
