Transportation from Hamburg

Do you need a special driving permit to drive in Germany (We will be visiting from the United States). Do you suggest train, bus, or car for traveling within Germany?

Bus is apart from a few routes (e.g. Hamburg - Berlin) no alternative. Car makes sense if you want to explore the countryside. For city trips train is best. To have a car is there completely useless for sightseeing. Will only add parking costs (at your hotel) and you'll need public transport tickets anyway.

In regards to a special driving permit you do not need one though to have the international one is usually a good idea.

And as abalada wrote it really depends on what you want to do.
