German Technology Route

The 'Made in Germany' experience

The German Technology Route connects several hundred technology hotspots spread over the whole country. The brainchild of the VDI Verein Deutscher Ingenieure [German Engineers’ Association], this themed route showcases the variety and tradition behind the quality seal “Made in Germany”.

We thoroughly recommend a trip through the many different worlds of German technology, starting on the Belgian border in the west then following country roads for 450 kilometres across the country to Thuringia. You will witness physical phenomena, enjoy underground adventures, observe gigantic radio telescopes, and see stunning scenery in the Eifel, Westerwald and Thuringian Forest.

In short, this heady mix of technology, natural beauty and pure driving pleasure is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, one you are sure to remember for years to come.

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.
