    Family fun in Germany

    When you are choosing a family holiday the normal destination's spring to mind; Spain, USA maybe Portugal, but did you know that Germany is a great fun place for the family to be? Go on admit it when you think of Germany you think of thick, dense forest land and Bratwurst? Sure they are both found in Germany but this versatile country has much more to offer!

    Pick up a car hire in Hanover and head for the exciting Heide-Park Resort. The huge resort is one of Germany's largest theme parks and has six roller coasters, three water rides and many more attractions! There are also attractions for younger children, such as the Fairyland magical cruise.

    Holiday Park located in the Palatinate region of Germany is a little different than other theme parks, in that it is half-theme park and half-nature park. You could spend your day thrill seeking on the roller coaster rides, take it slower on the canal cruise or you can spend time exploring the woodland areas!

    Being a car hire website we couldn't go without mentioning the theme park for car lovers. The Autostadt was opened by Volkswagen in 1994 and customer's from all over the world could come here and handpick their new vehicle. Over the years it has become quite the tourist attraction and now it boast's driving tracks for both adults and children, boat rides and car design simulation. Plus it is one of the few parks that is open all year round; expect for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve that is! Any parent knows that a trip to a theme park can be a little chaotic so here are a few tips that should help your day run allot smoother:

    Do a little research on the park and its attractions before you arrive; that way you can make sure you get to the rides you want to try before the queues start.

    Pack a picnic; paying the park prices for lunch and snacks can really break into your holiday budget so it's a good idea to take some food and drink with you.

    Dress code; make sure everyone is dressed in comfy clothes and shoes, remember your set for a day of walking so you need to be in comfy clothing.

    Be sun safe; if you are visiting in the main holiday season you are sure to be treated to a few hours of sunshine at the very least, make sure you apply the sun screen before you depart for your trip in the morning plus reapply every couple of hours.

    Hiring a car for a holiday of this nature makes complete sense. You can drive to the parks at your own leisure and stop for as little or as long as you like.
