Good to know

If you're coming from outside the EU and EEA countries, your driving licence is valid in Germany, but you may need to obtain an International Driving Permit. You must usually be over the age of 21 to rent a car in Germany. Although most of the German motorways (Autobahn) don't have a speed limit, this doesn't mean that you should not be aware of traffic signs and drive responsibly. Since heavy lorries and high-speed cars mostly share the same roads, strictly keep track of driving regulations in order to avoid any accidents. In the big cities, traffic can be heavy and many roads have several lanes. Be alert and watch out for cyclists and pedestrians.
