The best seasons to rent a motorhome and visit Berlin
The short answer here is simply Summer! Berlin’s summers are gorgeously warm without being overbearing and usually sit at highs of around 17 degrees Celsius all throughout June, July and August, with that cool summer breeze everyone loves.
After August, the warmth quickly disappears, but the start of Autumn is still fairly pleasant, before dropping quickly to highs of 5 degrees in November.
Fans of freezing in the cold will have a blast, too, with January getting to an average of -1 degrees before warming up slowly through March and April when highs start hitting 10 degrees.
Important camping and driving rules for Berlin
Put your Berlin campervan rental to good use with these important travel and camping tips:
- Drivers must have third-party liability insurance (included in your motorhome rental) and must carry this with them, as well as proof of ownership (registration or rental papers).
- Children under 12 or less than 1.5 meters tall may not sit in the front seat unless in an approved child seat. A safety seat may not be used in the front if there’s an active airbag installed, though.
- While there is no speed limit on the Autobahn, Berlin usually has defined speed limits, so pay attention to road signs. Generally, the limits are 130 km for motorways, 100 km for main roads, and 50km for urban areas.
- You are allowed to overtake motorbikes, but not other 4-or-more wheeled vehicles.
Day trips you’ll want to consider
If you’re looking for a break from the city, or are after some adventure, there are several great cities and sites within a few hours' drive of Berlin. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Only three hours from Berlin is a lively and culture-rich city to visit. Aside from tons of cultural sites to see, visiting Hamburg in your campervan hire also means seeing the world’s largest miniature railway model, Miniatur Wunderland, so get choo-choo-chooing!
The Saxon Switzerland National Park
Another must-see destination and also just three hours from Berlin. Explore over 400 kilometers of hiking, biking, and rock climbing tracks, with incredible valleys, sandstone cliffs and eroded rock formations all around you.
A lesser-known but hidden treasure, this entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Filled with iconic medieval architecture and lore, you can wander the streets on your own or take a guided tour of this novel old-timey experience.
A little further than the other day trip options, Stuttgart is a six hour drive from Berlin, but is home to the vast and fascinating Mercedes-Benz Museum. Over 1,500 exhibits and more than 160 vehicles are on display, showcasing the brand’s history and innovations that changed the world.
RV rental Berlin adventure: The best things to see and do
It’s hard to build out a list of top things to do in Berlin because there are simply so many things to experience! We could suggest the many cultural sites like the quintessential Berlin Wall Memorial, the Reichstag Building, or the Brandenburg Gate.
We could just as easily recommend discovering Berlin for yourself, and seeing how the subcultures and “vibes” change between each neighborhood, like the hipster, music and art-rich Kreuzberg, or punk and industrial Friedrichshain, or more refined and upscale Charlottenburg.
…Or, you could always dive into the world-famous nightclubs like the Berghain (if you’re lucky enough to get in), 3-day techno parties, and shenanigans at dawn. Just make sure you park your motorhome somewhere safe and sound!
