We should only be in Germany for a maximum of 2 days, I would imagine that we'll stop somewhere in Germany on day 1, and then be out of Germany and into Poland on day 2

Generally very good, main roads are very well maintained and should not offer us a problem - we do need to consider that if we want to cross the country at speed we will need to pay for the toll roads - some very usefull information on Germanys Autobahns here
