Both my brother and myself (wife’s bribed with the Xmas markets)! Have just returned from an amazing road trip to the Porsche museum ! On Wednesday after getting off the ferry at Dunkirk we set off to our first stop at Cologne and took in a Xmas market in the grounds of the catherdral.
Thursday we travelled to Stuttgart (by autobahn, yes the 911 got here legs stretched) stopping at the V8 hotel ( this place is amazing).

On Friday we visited the museum and did the factory tour and after a brisk tour of the museum set off back to Koln, where we stopped at the V8 hotel (that houses the Michael Schumacher collection). What an amazing place.

Before returning on Saturday we had another walk around the Xmas market which was so busy upon leaving we struggled to get out of the city streets due to all the diverts.

However the trip as amazing, the hotels were awesome, the museum and tour was incredible, all in all a trip of a lifetime.

I would highly recommend it to anyone, even our wife’s enjoyed it. Including the high speeds of the autobahn.
We have a lot to learn from the Germans as far as how to build roads that are actually flat and also there driving skills. I feel that the high speeds they travel at make them more aware and sharp. In 1200 miles I saw 2 accidents.

I agree, the hotels were just mind blowing, sat in reception drinking a beer and surrounded by cars!
