Satiate Wanderlust with these Dream European Road Trips

Road Trip

From castles to enchanting islands.

Experience the freedom, excitement, and adventure that traveling can bring by booking a rental car. Instead of spending three or more days in a smaller European capital, travelers are increasingly grabbing a Hertz Rent a Car and hitting the road for a more down-to-earth trip. Younger travelers enjoy the thrill of each turn of the open road where they can discover nooks of a country that not all tourists get to experience creating unique experiences. 

Here are few ideas of where to put your car in drive:

Fyn Road Trip: A Loop Around Denmark's Fairy-Tale Island

At the crossroads of Copenhagen and continental Europe, Fyn (pronounced FOON) is often referred to as the fairy-tale island, largely because it's the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. A trip around Fyn will, however, quickly reveal that it's not just Andersen's reputation that has earned the landmass its moniker. Furled into almost every bay and fjordlet is a charming harbor sprouting centuries-old manses that have been lovingly restored into quiet inns, cafés, and museums. And the swaths of wooded land in between are the realms of moated castles—some crumbling, others still occupied by royals. Often overlooked for wilder pastures, Fyn is the perfect escape from the capital or—dare we say—a worthy alternative to Copenhagen should your Denmark foray be short.
