What to do in Germany?
Large parts of the country, particularly in the south, are covered by the Alps. These mountains have given birth to the German pastime of hiking. Nature lovers will rejoice at just how much fresh air and wide-open space there is to enjoy. Car rentals in Germany are recommended because the best hikes are far from public transport. You'll also want to bring some hiking gear for the tougher trails.
Rent a room in a classic German lodge and enjoy good food and beer from the beer halls by night. By day, find a cheap car hire in Germany and explore the gorgeous countryside. There's plenty to see and do, and the sights are quite unlike any other.
Large parts of Germany can be very rural. When hiking, it's not unusual to run across animals like cows roaming around footpaths. Those used to cows confined to fields may be in for a shock. However, you will be fine as long as you walk confidently and keep your distance.
Thanks to its convenient location, Germany attracts many tourists. Plan your stay in the city ahead and find out in advance what the car rental company offers. With HAPPYCAR it's very simple - choose dates, compare offers and book the right car.
