"Why is eurofurr held mostly in germany? "

Something wrong with Germany?  Porche, BMW, 9-million gallons of lager per person and no speed limit's on the autobhan.  Sounds like my kinda place!

Lovverly autobahn :-)

Just a minor warning for the speedfreaks, tho: afaik, even though it's legal to drive at near-lightspeed, your insurane will probably contain a clause about not covering your arse if you go beyond 130kph.

Just mentioning :-)

Hang on, that's only about 80-odd mph, is it not? I've never heard of an insurance clause like that O.o 130mph I could understand.....

I'm not sure about insurance policies, but generally speaking, when you're involved in an accident after travelling at more than 130 kph, you'll likely be held at least partly responsible, even if it would otherwise have been the other party's fault entirely.

IIRC/AFAIK, BTW. IANAL.

The term for that actually is "heightened danger of operating" that leads to most of the domestic insurance companies putting at least a partial blame on the driver travelling at high speeds, even if the accident was not their fault in any way.

By the way, the Texas Highwayman's pages at http://gettingaroundgermany.home.att.net/auto.htm are pretty comprehensive for those who would like to know more about driving regulations and the like. But as a word of caution, just renting a car and hopping in if you've just stepped off a 13-hour flight in coach or have never driven on the Continent before are a bad idea anyways, so don't do it. :)

Oh sweet!  ;D  I am really keen on driving to EF now, IF I can find a driving buddy.  And if people think I will be their taxi service from the hotel to Suhl and back, think again!  ;)  If you pay me more than the going rate of a taxi then I might consider it...

Please tell me that I'm not the only one reading that page who, when looking at the "Basics page", thinks "oooh, drifting opportunity!!" when confronted by the "Typical rural Road" picture? :P


(and for the killjoys out there, I'm only kidding :P I'll probbaly be travelling at much less than my normal speed once in Germany ^.^ )

In that case, keep to the right of the road. If you see something flashing past, it might be me :-p

Oh I am so there! That's it, decision made, I am driving to EF.  This talk of "well maintained roads" is just too good to ignore.  The roads in the UK, if you are not from there, resemble the surface of the moon despite the government bleeding the motorist dry.
