Darmstadt is a city in the southern German state of Hesse, famous for its collection of Art Nouveau buildings, which generally sprouted up at around the time the Artists' Colony was present in the city. The centre of Darmstadt is marked by the Langer Ludwig monument on Luisenplatz. Darmstadt is part of Frankfurt's wider metropolitan area, and car hire from Darmstadt means you can be in Frankfurt in just half an hour. It's also worth noting that the city's attractions span a fairly wide radius, and hiring a car from Darmstadt allows you to take in the local zoo and the renowned fossil pit without travelling for too long.
Luisenplatz is a good starting point for your visit; here you'll find the towering monument to Ludwig I and the ducal palace. Admirers of the Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) scene will love the artists' colony. Park Rosenhoehe is a nice place to take time out from the city, and then there's the imaginative entertainment venue known as ‘Centralstation' - a converted power station. Hiring a car from Darmstadt means you can be at the Vivarium Zoo in minutes on the B26. Frankfurt is half an hour north on the A5, or rent a car from Darmstadt and the UNESCO-listed Messel Pit Fossil Site is a short drive away on the L3094.

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.
