Summertime is travel time and this year the desire to travel is particularly great. The first warm days of the year arouse wanderlust and make us crazy about planning. Of course, the road trip is at the top of the vacation list for many of us - vacation with the beloved car. Some like to plan road trips with their own car, others use this opportunity to rent a special model for a few days and explore the holiday region. We have put together tips and tricks for you on how to prepare your own car perfectly for a longer road trip and which car models are particularly attractive if you decide to rent a car. But first of all, a few words about the most beautiful mountain regions, which are ideal for your adventure on the asphalt.
Europe's mountains invite you to a sensational road trip
There are several mountain ranges in Europe, each offering unique panoramas. Since the infrastructure and the condition of the roads play an important role in order not to get stuck in the first pothole, the following regions are ours Check these top 5:
- Northern Spain: Fantastic bays and lonely sandy beaches, plus high mountains in the Pyrenees.
- Salzkammergut lakes: mountains, lakes and fantastic views.
- Western Alps: high mountains, deep valleys and a picturesque panorama.
- West Sweden: lonely fishing villages and untouched nature
- Scotland: pubs and landscapes that you only know from films.
In particular, the Salzkammergut region on the northern edge of the Austrian Alps is enjoying increasing popularity. This area is not far from the German border and only 20 km east of Salzburg and is extremely scenic. The approx. 76 Salzkammergut lakes, embedded between mountains and forests, invite you to cool off. There are many attractions: historical Point of Interest & Sights, like the Seeschloss or the hiking trails for nature lovers, the Grünbergbahn or the treetop path. The roads are in very good condition and traveling with your own car allows you to plan stops as you please.
But now to the mobile pedestal
No matter what kind of car you have, the following road trip accessories should not be missing on the trip: A cool box (ideally an electric one that can be charged via the 12V connection) to always be supplied with cool drinks, Entertainment for the children or passengers (e.g. tablet holder, car painting table, play mat for child seats), a navigation system with updated maps and various organizer elements so that the most important things are at hand on long journeys.
Large-scale all-rounders such as the Mercedes Viano Marco Polo, the Audi A4 Avant Quattro, the Ford Focus Kombi or Mondeo are transformed into a multi-faceted cross-country vehicle where we can find space for everything: 4 to 5 passengers, luggage, possibly sports equipment and food for them Journey. These trolleys are definitely the first choice if you are traveling with family or friends and you want to be able to take a lot of luggage and equipment with you.
For a road trip for two there are sporty two-seater as a convertible: Pierce Brosnan already appreciated the Bavarian runabout BMW Z3 Roadster as James Bond in Golden Eye. The chic sports car doesn’t have a lot of space for luggage, but promises pure driving pleasure, especially in winding regions. Real driving pleasure as a convertible in summer! Similarly sporty, but more comfortable and much more historical, the Alfa Romeo Spider is a great companion through mountains and serpentines. The chic Italian gives the road trip a touch of Dolce Vita and is an eye-catcher when cruising comfortably through the mountains. Car, route, equipment - these are the three things that have to be organized and the great adventure begins!
