The contest will take place June 1 through July 6, 2015. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter users may participate by posting a German-themed photo or video and using the hashtag #GutenTagAmericaContest, says the company.

Additionally, entrants must tag Sixt rent a car or @SixtUSA. A different German theme will be announced at the beginning of each week, starting with “German Style and Fashion.”
