Bordering Belgium and the Netherlands, Aachen is the westernmost city in Germany and was a favoured destination of the European emperor Charlemagne. The city as we know it today has kept a lot of the medieval buildings and historic sights as a tribute to Aachen's rich history.
If you want to take up car hire in Aachen then all these sights and many more can be easily reached; drive up to Aachen Cathedral,- a UNESCO World Heritage Site- where Charlemagne himself was crowned along with dozens of other monarchs. Its gorgeous architecture and stunning interiors make for an enthralling trip.
Car hire in Aachen allows tourists to easily get around the city and see both sides of Aachen; the fascinating historical locations as well as its current economical growth in science and innovation. The university campus around Templergraben contains some beautiful buildings which have been around for more than a century, while the Uniklinik is on a par with the Pompidou in Paris for fans of postmodern architecture.
Easily accessible by car, the Soers region in the north of the city plays host to CHIO-Aachen each summer; it's the equestrian world's most prestigious tournament, and attracts plenty of fans to the Hauptstadion throughout.
Using car hire in Aachen will allow those wanting to venture further afield in Germany plenty of travel options. The city of Cologne is but an hour away on the A4 road; it's the fourth-largest city in Germany and has some of the country's most diverse cultural attractions from orchestras to museums.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
