Driving is easy and increasingly popular. Journey time from Dunkirk or Calais, especially overnight or on Sundays is usually no more than eleven hours and the only limit to what you take is the size of your car and how many people come with you! We recommend www.aferry.com for the most competitive ferry prices. Use the Eurotunnel website for their prices.
Our recommended route takes you through France, Belgium, Luxembourg - and some of the cheapest fuel in Europe, Germany and into Austria. Recommended GPS direction titles are 'Lille', 'Luxembourg', Pirmasens', Munich, 'Worgl' and 'Niederau'. As you approach Niederau from the valley road turn left into the village and left again after about 250m by the hotel Austria. The Staffler is at the bottom on the hill on the right.
