It is possible to travel there safely with your own vehicles. According to the latest information (07.07.01), it is now possible to travel through or to Serbia without a visa (there will be more details in the next update). The distance via the most direct route (through Belgrade) is about 1, 600 km from Frankfurt am Main. The much prettier route through Bosnia and Montenegro is about 1, 800 km; however, it takes 6 hours longer because of the mountains.
There are likewise regular coaches to all Balkan cities
