Renting an exotic sports car in Germany and taking it for a nice trip over the weekend – Is there anything better on earth? But: Where to go with your dream car? Any suggestions? Cruising from cafe to cafe might be interesting for a few minutes and might even turn some heads. But using your rental time efficient offers a lot more opportunities. We put together what came into our heads and here are some ideas for the perfect weekend with a sports car:
Your Alpine Adventure
By far the most renters take their vehicles in mountain terrain. And when we tell you about mountains we mean some real mountains! The Alps for example are giving you a really good opportunity to get to know your new car, offer some brilliant views from top to top, bring up curvy roads that you ever dreamed of and bring you together with lots of other petrol heads to talk about what you just experienced. Countries like Italy, Austria and Switzerland even make you feel a bit exotic after spending a few days in Germany. So that is what we call a real sports car holiday! By the way: The best places to start your journey up to top are Munich or Stuttgart.
But what if you´re more into experiencing the North of Germany? Is that even worth renting a sports car there? Yes, of course, it is! Cruising in a sporty convertible or a classic car from coast to cost, taking a dive into the blue water und enjoying some really lonely German island roads is for sure worth every second of it! You can even make some day trips to near Denmark or (by using one of the ferries) to Sweden and so include a Scandinavian adventure in your journey! The sports car for this should ideally be rented in Hamburg or nearby.
Highspeed on the German Autobahn
We Germans are using them more or less daily and often don´t even recognize what amazing thing is offered here to us: I mean, who else is able to enjoy perfect maintained roads, six lanes wide that don´t even have a general speed limit!?
There are just a few better places on earth to get familiar with the performance of a sports car during a weekend (when traffic is even lower) and mess with other drivers! There must be a reasons why thousands of carguys come to Germany every year to enjoy experiences like the famous German Autobahn Experience and get above the 300 km/h (or 200 mph) limit at least once in a lifetime… By the way: The fastest (and less frequented) Autobahn sections can be found nearby Berlin, Leipzig and Magdeburg in east Germany.
Nürburgring Nordschleife – Welcome to Green Hell
If you´re travelling with your family or just bring some friends there´s exactly one location in Germany to get to: The legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife. Even though a ride directly at the race track is usually not insured in your rental sports car, it´s already a pleasure just being there, getting in touch with all the motorsport spirits around and meeting petroldheads from all over the world that share the same passion. If you´re really looking to drive this track there´re even possibilities to rent especially prepared race cars. You really should come to this magical place at least once! The perfect base to start your journey is Düsseldorf, Cologne or Frankfurt.
Automobile castles and museums
If you´re more looking for a quiet and relaxing trip your should definitely visit one of the big automobile “theme parks” in Germany. It doesn´t matter if this is the BMW Welt in Munich, Porsche & Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart, the Audiforum in Ingolstadt or the Autostadt in Wolfsburg: All of them offer you a big entertaining program with car-related content and so are the perfect places to make your sports car rental weekend really unique!
