À propos de Berlin

Germanys most vibrant, cultural and constantly evolving city. This is just a few of the most commonly used phrases when talking about Berlin, the capital of Germany. The city mesmerizes every visitor with the mix of old and modern, wild and settled, world-class restaurants and wild nightlife. 

Berlin is the largest city in Germany and is the second-most populous city in the European Union. The city which lies on the banks of the Spree river was firstly documented in the 13th century. Now one of the most metropolitan cities went through a rough historic path. Berlin was one of the most bombed cities in history. Large parts of the city were destroyed, and thousands of city/s Jews were imprisoned and taken to concentration camps. After World war II the city was divided by the Berlin wall. When the Cold war ended in 1989 and the wall fell, the west and the east were reunited, and the city quickly became modern capital.

The cities appearance was heavily shaped by historic events of the previous century. Ambitious reconstruction programs and vivid history have resulted in more than 1000 sights to see and explore. So, start your journey, find the best car hire deal at Berlin airport or any other pick-up locations in the city and enjoy this beautiful city!

Car hire in Berlin is a great decision because Germany itself is a land of efficient wonderful cars and precise engineering. Beside their beautiful cars, most roads are well maintained so driving through the German landscape is a delight. When you search for car hire in Berlin, you will mostly find cars with the manual gear shift. An automatic car would have to be pre-booked, as there is not much offer. When driving in the city also mind the rush hour and numerous cyclists as Berlin is one of the 15 most cyclist-friendly cities.

  • Age limits: You must be 18 to get an unrestricted license but 21 to hire a car in Berlin with a foreign passport and license. Many car hire companies will not rent to a person under the age of 25. Drivers in their first year should not drive after midnight.
  • International Driving Permit: always required for people who belong to a non-EU country. For European residents, the driving license from the home country is accepted for a period of 12 months.
  • Additional papers: When driving in Germany, keep your full license, V5C certificate, passport and proof of insurance with you. 
  • Additional requirements: Safety for Germans represents a big deal, so you must keep warning triangle, reflective safety jacket and beam reflector in the boot of your car. In winter your vehicle should be completed with winter tires or snow chains (otherwise you can be partially blamed in case of an accident). 
  • Children in the car: Children under 12 years of age are required to be seated in a child seat.
  • Driving side of the road: Right Hand Side
  • Lights: Although the standard three-colored traffic lights system is implemented in Germany, it is way more comprehensive than any other, due to additional signs and symbols which increase public safety.
  • General speed limits: Speed limits in Germany are determined as follows: 50km/h is allowed in urban areas, 100 km/h on main roads and 130 km/h on motorways. Several parts of German Autobahn have no speed limit. These parts are marked with five diagonal black lines on a black sign.  
  • Parking suggestions: The center of the city is a low emission environmental zone therefore not all cars are allowed to park in the center. To enter the city center, you need a special badge designated as Umwelt zone, which should be stuck on a windshield. Parking on the street can be very expensive, so parking garages are a great cheaper alternative. Also, many hotels provide free parking for their guests.

Although Berlin is a city of hundreds of sights and public transport is well organized, we recommend considering car hire in Berlin when visiting Germany. The surroundings are as beautiful as the city and worth visiting. As mentioned before, there is a land of 3000 lakes west from the city offering great views and gorgeous nature. An hour drive with your rental car from the city there are several natural parks and reserves such as the Nuthe-Nieplitz national park or Dahme-Heideseen natural park.

You can also visit Pfauneninsel (also known as the Peacock island). This is a fairy-tale look-alike little oasis with picturesque buildings and a palace from the 18th century. Grab a blanket and enjoy a picnic where King Frederick William II/s summer home used to be. If you admire the pure nature, go to Spreewald, which is a 1,5 h drive. 

Not far from Berlin there are also several scenic cities. Only a 35 km drive from the capital is the city of Potsdam. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and the capital of Brandenburg is worth exploring because of its vivid history. An hour drive to the south/west there is the city of Leipzig.
