How to Get to Bayerisch Eisenstein
Driving from the UK
Driving time from Calais by this recommended route is normally max. 10 hours - obviously traffic jams and roadworks can increase the time. Extra time needs to be allowed for breaks. It can be done in one day but this is only advisable if you really like long drives and have tolerant passengers.
Recommended route: Calais - Reims - Metz - Saarbruecken - Mannheim - Heilbronn - Nuernberg - Regensburg - Deggendorf- then country roads to Bayerisch Eisenstein (signposted from Deggendorf).
This route has the least traffic and is therefore usually faster in spite of being marginally longer than the route recommended by all SatNavs and navigation websites (through Belgium). There are tolls to pay on the French section of the route but the cost is well worth it because of the lack of traffic.
If you bring your own car from the UK, your UK insurance will normally cover you for driving in EU countries with no extra cost or restrictions. You should carry your V5 with you as you will be asked for this if you are stopped for any reason. If you intend to drive in major cities, you may need an emissions sticker for your car. You can check which areas it applies to and order a sticker here: environmental-badge
An alternative idea is to have at least one overnight stop in each direction and make the journey part of the holiday - there are plenty of nice towns and other places to visit on the way, for example: Heidelberg, the motor museum at Sinsheim, Nuernberg, Regensburg
Remember, you do not have to book exact weeks with us (Saturday to Saturday) - you can arrive and depart on any day and stay any number of days.
Driving from Belgium/Netherlands
We recommend the E45 to bypass Frankfurt, then Wuerzburg - Nuernberg - Deggendorf and country roads to Bayerisch Eisenstein, (It looks like a bit of a detour to get to, but the traffic is much lighter on the E45 than on the Rhine autobahns).
