German Avenue Route

German Avenue Route

From the Baltic to Dessau.

Picture yourself on a sunny weekend with the top down, cruising iconic tree-lined avenues, enchanted by the flashing sun filtered through the leaves – next stop Nirvana? The German Avenue Route gives you that intense “back to nature” feeling of oneness with the road and the world.

At 3,000 kilometres, this mother of road trips is Germany’s longest, from the Baltic island of Rügen to Lake Constance. Eighty percent of all avenues are located in the north east of Germany, so the trip through Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg und Sachsen-Anhalt is an Eldorado for avenue fans. Many are small, quiet country roads lined with ancient trees; an exhilarating driving experience that memories are made of. As if that wasn’t enough, you will pass four UNESCO Heritage Sites on the 450-kilometre trip: Nationalpark Jasmund on Rügen, the Hanseatic city of Stralsund, the Bauhaus in Dessau and the Dessau-Wörlitz Gartenreich.

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.
