Hire a car in Frankfurt

Frankfurt holds a bounty of unique entertainment.

Germany’s fifth largest city, Frankfurt's entrepreneurial spirit and modern cityscape give the city an almost North American feel. With a quarter of its residents holding foreign passports, Frankfurt has an international and cross-cultural air about it.

The city is a short drive from some beautiful and rugged German landscape too, making it a great place to hire a car to experience both the bustling metropolis and leisurely outdoors.

Scenic drives

Rhine River Valley

Meandering its way through a gentle landscape is one of the world’s greatest rivers – the Rhine. Its middle 65km stretch, known as the Rhine Gorge, is a designated UNESCO heritage site and historic place of settlement. Fairy-tale villages and 40 hilltop castles dot the vista, while the vineyards sewn into the valley walls produce some of Germany’s finest wines.

Start your drive from the city of Bingen – around a one hour from Frankfurt – and make your way up the river to Koblenz. With 2,000 years of history, Koblenz is well worth taking a stroll around or even spending a couple days in. If you visit in August, try to catch the annual fireworks bonanza, Rhein in Flammen.

Travel tips

When planning your itinerary, note that shops in Germany are typically closed on Sunday.

Germans tip modestly, so after a meal, simply round up the bill by a few euros and don't leave change on the table, include the tip when paying.

Bike lanes
Watch out for bike lanes when driving or walking, as they sometimes have a dedicated section of wide pavement.

City Cards
Buy a Museumufer Ticket if you’re planning on touring the city’s museums, it will give you entry to 34 of Frankfurt’s best sites. Or try a Frankfurt Card, which offers 50% off a variety of city attractions and tours.
