I'm driving from Prague to West Germany on the A6 and am looking for a nice place to stay overnight, preferably between Nuremberg and the Czech border. My wife and I want to interact with people, so a bed and breakfast or boarding house would be great. We're open to staying in rural or urban areas.

Do you have any tips on how to find a place to stay in Germany?

Can you be a little more specific in terms of what "good" means to you? – Karlson Apr 19 '13 at 1:51
@Karlson Basically what I described in the question - bed and breakfasts or boarding houses. Can't say much more because I don't really know - I'm up for mostly anything as long as it's not a long drive from the highway... – Phil Apr 19 '13 at 2:13
May be it's just me but 300km drive isn't really conducive for a leisurely stops unless you're going somewhere specific... – Karlson Apr 19 '13 at 16:21

I can suggest the town of Amberg. I think it is a very pretty place to stay and somehow not touristy at all. You can reach it taking exit 66 on A6.

In the middle of the old town is a Hotel that belongs to a bar where you can meet locals. Kates Amberg Hotel.

Giving a quick look on Google I can only find 3 hotels/pension haus' near the Germany-Czech Republic border. They are in Waidhaus which is just off the E50 route.

A local expert might add some more to the list.
