[Check this out](http://www.gettingaroundgermany.info/zeichen.shtml). European traffic signs are very similar. So if you know one set, you should be able to figure them out in another country. For example, Austria’s “end all restrictions” sign is a solid bar instead of 5 thin lines (same as several countries). Obviously it means go the national speed limit, not as fast as you want as it does in Germany (recommended 130 k/hr in Germany). Also, always pass on the left, people dont expect you to pass them on the right. Watch for non-Germans not paying attention. I almost slammed into a French guy that cut me off going roughly 80 mph less than me.
Just be careful, and remember fines are *far more* expensive there than in the US (if that’s where you’re from). So when there are rules, follow them.
That said, have fun. Europe is a good place to get your feet wet on driving abroad. I have been some places that were absolute madness where rules didn’t seem to matter. There are many more similarities to driving in the US and Europe than differences. Have fun!
