Drive Germany's "Toy Route" through the Thuringian Forest and Fraconian Switzerland

The German Toy Route runs from Erfurt to Nuremberg, passing through the areas of traditional German toymaking. Even today Thuringia and Franconia manufacture toys and dolls that remain popular around the world. Numerous museums give insights into the history of toy manufacturing while brands such as Rolly Toys and Playmobil continue to sell these traditional German toys to many generations of fans.

Driving enthusiasts will relish the challenging sections they face on this route; away from the autobahns they can test their skills on the narrow, winding country roads which pass through remote mountainous and hilly terrain.

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.
