Dusseldorf driving tips

Driving in Dusseldorf is relatively straight forward, but the Old Town with its narrow cobbled streets is a tad tricky to navigate – it’s much better to explore this part of the city on foot. Here are some guidelines to hiring a car in Dusseldorf.

Environmental zone
The city centre is an environmental zone which means you will need to make sure your rental car has the required green badge on the windscreen.

Old Town
Vehicle restriction zones, one way roads and limited parking are just a few of the challenges that the Old Town present to drivers. Make sure you are aware of these, so that you don’t end up with a fine.

Speed limits
Contrary to popular belief, some sections of the Autobahn have a set of speed limit restrictions that range from 80 to 130km. Drive sensibly, even if the locals don’t!
