    By Car

    by Helga67 Written Nov 11, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're exploring on your own, it's a good idea to rent some means of transport, because buses can be sparse, their schedules not geared to outsiders, and trains too limiting. Renting a bike is a good option: this is wonderful and easy cycling country, best of all on the floodbanks of the river itself.
