In Central Ruhr is the city of culture and commerce, Essen. Although it's the ninth largest city in Germany, it still packs quite a punch for visitors and residents alike, if you want a never ending torrent of things to do, this is the ideal place for you. Even if you're only in the city for a couple of days, car hire in Essen is the best way to move around freely. The streets are lined with charming architecture, diverse museums, and many other cultural must sees - you'll never have a dull moment.
The Villa Hügal is a striking architectural find that transports you back in time. Surrounded by a vast park, and atop the Baldeney lake, it is an enchanting historic part of the city. You can also rent a car in Essen to visit the Old Town Werden, found 35 minutes outside the city. Although it isn't part of Essen itself, it's still a must see attraction if you're nearby and have the means to reach it. Rustic, worldly, and lined with timbered buildings, it's a romantic spot. With our cars you don't have to put up with unexpected delays, or ridiculously long queues, you can just drive to your heart's content.
Dortmund, Duisburg, and Düsseldorf are all within driving distance, meaning you'll never run out of places to visit. If you want to explore Duisburg you can get there in no time at all, just take the A40 and be there in 20 minutes flat. Not bad if you want a day trip out, but don't want to travel too far for the privilege. Lehmbruck Museum is a diverse art facility that has extensive paintings and sculptures. Even if you're not an art fanatic, you'll be sure to be moved and fascinated by the different artistic mediums on offer

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.
