Driving a motorhome in Germany
In Germany the minimum age of a driver is 17 years but there will be age restrictions applicable to motorhomes. Children must be at least 12 years of age to sit in the front seat and younger ones must sit in the rear with a seat belt.
Vehicles must carry a warning triangle, including motorhomes. Seat belts must be worn, front and rear. All motorhomes in Germany must be equipped with a first-aid kit and spare bulbs are required
Your RV in Germany may not break the land speed record but to avoid fines you must observe the speed limits: 50 km/h (30 mph) in built-up areas; 100 km/h (62 mph) or 130 km/h (81 mph) outside built-up areas; a recommended 130 km/h (81 mph) on the Autobahn. Automatic cameras are used extensively to catch violators. Enough said about speed limits.
International sections of the Autobahn are signified by green rectangles bearing an E; while the letter A is used to signify intranational sections of the Autobahn. National roads are marked by black numbers on a yellow background.
The roads in the former West Germany are extremely well engineered and maintained. Responses to emergencies are very well planned and executed.
Drivers in Germany are very good and well disciplined and makes driving a RV in Germany easier than other countries.
Camping in Germany
Campsites in Germany are very well equipped and have lots of amenities including excellent restaurants. Generally sites cannot be reserved. Free-camping is allowed for one night at highway rest areas, but it's illegal elsewhere unless you have the permission of, say, the farmer.
