A Special Germany Vacation: Driving on the Autobahn

Ein LLAG Urlaubspaket: Schnell Auto fahren auf der Autobahn - Lernen Sie Deutschland von seiner schnellen Seite kennen!

One of our vacation apartment partners, Jörg Freiwald, has put together an interesting vacation package. When you rent the vacation apartment (#2515 or #3038), you can book the “autobahn package” at the same time. Further details:
Germany is home to a well-established network of highways. One of its most important sections is the Autobahn 9 from Berlin to Munich. Nearly 600 km from North to South, with three lanes in each direction. On more than 60% of this highway, there is no speed limit. Germany is the only country in the world where one is permitted to drive as fast as the car can go.
The roads were built in such a way as to be able to take the corners at speeds of 200km/h without any problems. It is a fantastic experience. Many European neighbors and tourists visit Germany just for this opportunity. Be one of them.
Jörg Freiwald and his team will organize everything for you: You choose the car – Mercedes, Audi, BMW or VW. You will be picked up at the airport with the car, you will enjoy an EXPRESS drive to Weissenfels (taking 1.5 hours) where you are familiarized with the car and given a short training in safe driving – and off you are, the next day, to drive to Berlin, Munich, Nuremberg, Dresden or wherever else you want to go. All necessary travel documents, tips and infos will be passed on to you by Mr. Freiwald. We will also gladly send these documents to you so you can prepare yourself before the trip. Get to know the faster side of Germany.
Other things to do in Weissenfels and its surroundings:
It’s a part of the country full of castles and of great historical importance. Hardly another area of central Germany holds as many old, historic castles as this “Burgenlandkreis.”
Its attractiveness and image is also greatly influenced by the old cultural landscape at the Saale, Unstrut and Elster rivers, shaped by a thousand years of wine cultivation, in particular.
The castles which have given this area its name as well as palaces and highly regarded landscape and nature reserves, alongside the Saale-Unstrut-Triasland national park, are among the region’s main attractions.
Another highlight is the Arche Nebra (Nebra Ark), the visitor’s center at the location where the Nebra sky disk was uncovered, offering a lookout tower, and the sun observatory in Goseck, the oldest of its kind in Europe. The film industry has recently had ever-greater interest in the neighboring towns of Querfurt and Quedlinburg, whose historic scenery is truly fascinating.
