Welcome to Avis

German Alpine Route

Lake Constance to the Watzmann mountains.

The Alps: green meadows, jagged peaks, crystal-clear lakes and gently undulating foothills. A magical blend of pristine natural beauty, age-old traditions, hearty regional delicacies and state-of-the-art tourist infrastructure.

No surprise then, that this was the birthplace of Germany’s first scenic tourist route. It’s the unique combination of outstanding scenic beauty and ultimate test of driving skill that makes the German Alpine Route so special and where you can genuinely say it’s more about the journey than the destination.

We’ve picked out a few of the special highlights for you along this 450-kilometre drive.

It goes without saying, but any wine stops detailed on this page are for the benefit of hire car passengers ... designated drivers must confine themselves to drinking in the scenery.
