With a little preparation and knowledge, Germany is probably one of the most accessible tourist destinations in Europe. From the moment you arrive in Germany, you will receive a warm welcome across a network of cities, towns and regions which have pledged to provide an all-access and BarrierFree environment. When travelling to and around Germany you can be assured of a similar promise from our airports, motorway service stations and local transport companies.
Currently there are 15 German Airports with direct flights from all over the UK. Flight times from the UK are usually 1 - 2 hours maximum, depending on your destination.
Despite the fact that Germany invented the automobile and the motorway, for visitors and people in Germany, public transport is still very much king. Fast, efficient and cost effective, there is a huge infrastructure of trains, trams and buses, which can take you to almost any destination.
Taking your own car or hiring a car in Germany allows you to go wherever you like, without having to plan in advance, except for the accommodation maybe. Drive to Germany and you can take as much as you like, most importantly you don’t have to worry about how much shopping you do or how many wonderful things you could take back.
