Any Tips for Driving from Croatia to Germany...?

Jump to last reply

I'm be traveling from Croatia through Slovenia and Austria enroute to Munich for the opening weekend of Oktoberfest in mid-September. My International Driving Permit is forthcoming and I can (shockingly...for an American) drive manual.

We'll be flying into Dubrovnik the Friday beforehand and plan to visit Hvar for two nights before continuing northward. It'd be great to spend at least one night in Lake Bled and we've already resolved ourselves to driving through Austria without stopping (beyond pit stops).

Any tips? Any recommendations for car rental companies? Any considerations I should be mindful of (e.g., road conditions, crossing country borders, parking in cities/towns, etc)? Any must-see sites along the way?

Any helpful advice is much appreciated. Thank you!
