Despite its small size, the Bavarian town of Ansbach has a rich history for you to explore. Once the seat of Margraves of Brandenburg, Ansbach takes its place on the world famous Castle Road -the 12km Castle Route which runs eastward across Germany to the Czech city of Prague.
Car hire in Ansbach will allow you to meander through its historic streets, taking you back to a time of Baroque beauty; sights such as the churches of St. John and St. Gumbert, the Residenz Ansbach and the stunning orangery in the court gardens will all leave you staring in awe at their architectural allure.
Hiring a car in Ansbach allows you to explore the city and take in some of its main attractions. If you're after a bit of Baroque look no further than the Residenz Ansbach. Its 27 state rooms manage to recapture the essence of the period, with the two-storey banqueting hall one of its most spectacular features.
You may also wish to drive to the stunning Margravial orangery in the court gardens. Built in the 1700s, it plays host to the annual Ansbach Rococo Festival in July, which transforms the area into its 17th century former self.
Hiring a car in Ansbach gives you access to some of Bavaria's largest cities with Nuremberg a mere 45-minute drive along the A6. This historic city gives visitors the chance to stroll within the medieval city fortification known as the Craftman's Courtyard (Handwerkerhof). Full of quirky workshops, it is the perfect place to pick up a unique gift for family members.
If you'd like to venture a little further afield, a 2-hour drive to Munich down the A9 means you can enjoy the bright city lights of one of Germany's largest cities. Whether it's shopping, entertainment or fine dining, Munich has it all.

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.
