Germany Home Base

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Germany in the Fall (Aug/Sept) and wondering where the best city is for a home base. We plan to stay only for a week and flying from Honolulu. So, I believe the most direct city with the least stops is to Frankfurt.

The "must do" things for us on this trip is visit both the BMW and Porsche museums/factory. We are willing to rent a car and drive to various cities, unless you think taking trains would be easier.

So, I guess my questions are 1) where are the best locations for us to stay, 2) how difficult is it for a visitor to drive around in Germany and 3) is there any other "must do" scenic or historical sites that is near the area you are suggesting as a home base, given our relatively short trip?
