From Frankfurt International Airport (FRA), take the A5 Autobahn to the main city center—a 20-minute ride. Your first stop should be Roemerberg—a lively public square in Old Town, which is the iconic highlight of the city. It’s lined with medieval half-timbered buildings, including a three-peaked Town Hall, a Historical Museum, and a 12th-century cathedral.
After taking in the traditional architecture, steer your van rental to Frankfurt’s most celebrated bridge—the Eiserner Steg. This pedestrian bridge offers incredible views of Frankfurt’s skyline and has loads of love locks attached to it.
Starving? Head to Kleinmarkthalle, Frankfurt's main market hall. There’s a farmers' market on Thursday and Saturday. Sample local snacks and dishes, including freshly grilled sausages and Frankfurter Kranz (cream cake).
Wrap up your city trip at Staedel (Städel) Museum, which houses 700 years of art, as well as Germany’s most important classic collections.
While a van rental is the most convenient way to access all noteworthy sites scattered around Frankfurt, the city’s streets and parking can be packed on weekends. Sprinters do not fit into most indoor/underground parking structures, but the comfortable Mextris / V-Class Minivans do.
In the late afternoon, drive to Heidelberg and spent the night there. It’s around 1 hour (56.3 miles) south of Frankfurt via the A5 Autobahn. This red-tiled university town is revered as one of the most charming fairytale towns in Germany. It rests along the Neckar River and is encompassed by beautiful lush forests.
In the morning, visit Heidelberg’s most famous site—the medieval Heidelberg Palace ruins, which sit on a hill watching over the Old Town. This castle’s Renaissance-style architecture will blow your breath away. It also hosts festivals, concerts, theater performances, and fireworks displays.
You can also marvel at the University building that dates back to 1711, cross the romantic Karl Theodor Bridge, and wander the narrow streets of Historic Old Town (it has nice cafes and eateries to fuel up).
Resting cozily at the foot of the Black Forest in South Germany, Baden-Baden is one of the world's best-known spa towns. It’s 1 hour (56 miles) south of Heidelberg on the A5. Take a dip into the mineral-rich thermal baths that bubble from beneath the earth. These springs have been used since Roman times.
With your Southern Germany van rental you can get off the beaten path, so we suggest you visit Geroldsauer waterfall to enjoy tumbling waters, cool mists, and a woodland ramble. The trail starts at Bütthof forest car park and meanders through a wild and spectacular valley.
Pilot your Frankfurt Sprinter van rental across the German border to Strasbourg in northeastern France. It’s about 50 minutes (36 miles) from Baden Baden. Strasbourg is a brilliant city offering a unique blend of German and French culture, architecture, and cuisine. No special permit or insurance are required to enter France. There should be no wait, it is just like crossing a state line in the US. Using the France freeway system does cost money, toll booths are positioned along the way and on exits. You pay as you go using any credit card.
Check out the awe-inspiring Gothic cathedral with a 465 feet spire and astronomical clock. Stroll along Petite France, a maze of old streets featuring timber-framed houses, quaint cobblestone streets, and picturesque riverside walkways. If you have limited time, opt for a one way van rental from Frankfurt.
Drop off your van rental in Strasbourg France if your trip ends here.
A trip to western Germany isn’t complete without a scenic drive through the Black Forest. Instead of heading back to Frankfurt using the same route, spice up things by gliding up The Black Forest road. The Black Forest is a large forested mountain range bordering France. Apart from the lush canopies, it’s famous for breathtaking waterfalls, picturesque villages, and the largest cuckoo clock in the world.
From Strasbourg, steer your Frankfurt Sprinter rental to Moosturm Observation Deck in Germany via the B28. Park close to this lookout tower, hike up the hill, and marvel at the stunning view of the forest and mountain ranges.
If you have to get to Frankfurt on the same day, enter the Black Forest High Drive (B500), a famous high-altitude scenic road with magnificent vistas over the Rhine plain to the Vosges (France) mountains. Take a breather at Mummelsee, a cute and perfectly round lake. From here, drive on to Baden Baden, join the A5 Autobahn, and cruise to Frankfurt.
If you have time, head south from Moosturm towards Burgbach Waterfall, which drops over a 32-meter rock face. Further south is the tallest fall in Germany—Triberg Waterfalls, which cascades over 163 meters. Stuttgart is another noteworthy destination, and its Mercedes-Benz Museum is a must-see.
These detours may add an extra day to your trip. You can book a hotel in one of the pretty towns along the B500.
Sprinter-rentals was easy to use. We booked with them when last minute changes to our trip to

Good communication, fair price, and quality vehicle. Pick up and drop off we’re super easy.
