Driving in Central Europe

Hi, I'm taking a trip through Nuremberg, Prague, Kraków, and Wroc?aw in a few weeks. Along the way, I am stopping to stay in a couple places that are all but inaccessible to public transit.
So, I need to rent a car for those legs. Any tips on car rental and general driving tips in Central Europe? I'll be driving around the country in Bavaria, and then from Prague through Lower Silesia (Southwest Poland). I otherwise will take trains & buses, where available.

ITT: Stories of people being generous/hospitable towards you while traveling
>Last money gets stolen in Amsterdam hostel, only way to get home (Belgium) is hitchhiking
>No phone charge, no food, no water, nothing
>Managed to get to Rotterdam
>In this ghetto as fuck shady area
>Car pulls over, offers me a ride to the nearest train-station
>Tell him my story. He hands me a 10 euro bill. I refuse, but he insists. Buy a ticket to downtown Rotterdam and some food + water with it. Very kind man.
>Now in downtown Rotterdam. It's already dark, nobody picks up male hitchhikers at night, so I decide to spend the night in Rotterdam
>Don't know where to look
>End up finding a hostel
>Tell the receptionist my story, politely ask if they can help me out.
>'Sure, you can sleep on the couch in the common area if you want!'
>Get free beers and a meal. When I took off in the morning and thanked the kind receptionist, he said: 'Hold on.'
>Wait 5 minutes
>hands me cellophane-wraped sandwiches
>'Here's your lunch. Good luck!'
This trip really made me love people. Got any similar stories, /trv/ ?

I'm going to Palma de Mallorca for a week. Then to Munich (or Berlin, haven't decided) then back to Palma, for another week.
As you can see I have plenty of time there.
What can I do? Things to see, do?
My interests: cars, architecture and art, general sightseeing, nature, extreme sports (points for bungee jumping) and partying.
ALSO, FOOD. I NEED TIPS ON FOOD. I want to try things that I can't eat back home.
Advice about germany would be appreciated too. I'm open to other cities as well.

I'll be traveling to Ireland for a week in late July. It's my first time in the UK. What advice should I keep in mind? What are some of the best things to check out/do there? (I'm up for anything. I love nature, food, museums, etc.) I'll also be in London for about 3 days, so I could also use ideas for that.
I'm an American btw, if that matters.
