Car Tourism in Germany

photoGermans love their cars, and automotive cognoscenti love Germany. Go anywhere in the country, and you're never distant from a car museum, factory tour, or racetrack.

photoYou don't even have to drive to reach most attractions, thanks to a nationwide high-speed rail system--and when you do drive, you can put the hammer down and forget about speed limits on many sections of Germany's fabled Autobahn network.
