There's perhaps no more storied motorway system in the world than Germany's famed Autobahn, with some 13,000km (or 8,000 miles) of German engineered asphalt crisscrossing the largely flat landscapes throughout the country. Of course its most singular claim to fame is the lack of speed limits, although technically speaking there are in fact “advisory speed limits” only on around three-quarters of the Autobahn, with the remaining quarter having enforced speed limits like the rest of the world. So any wannabe Hamilton Lewises visiting Berlin would be well advised to look into renting a car for at least a day to experience the freedom of the German Autobahn for themselves - and if you've come this far, you might as well go the full distance and book a Mercedes, BMW or Audi to really make the most of your time.
