The city of Kassel is found in the north of Hesse in Germany, on the Fulda River. It is known as the city of fairy tales and works of art due to the legacy left behind by the Brothers Grimm who wrote many classic children's books. If you are visiting the area then a trip to the Brothers Grimm Museum is a must. Hiring a car in Kassel means you can whizz around the city with ease, as well as having the freedom to go further afield. We have two branches conveniently situated around the city, one of which is at Wilhelmshohe Railway Station.
There's really something for everyone in this city. Hiring a car in Kassel, make your way to Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe which is a landscape park. This park is special because at 590 acres it is the largest hillside park in Europe and the second largest park that is on a mountain slope in the world. With its beautiful lakes and secluded ponds why not take a leisurely stroll around the park before stopping to admire the grand fountain. While you are there be sure to look for the Hercules monument which is a copper stature that depicts the Greek demigod Heracles.
Hiring a car in Kassel gives you the freedom to travel to where ever you chose such as the Fridericianum which is one of the oldest public museums in Europe. Spend a rainy day here and discover collections of art, antiques and weaponry to name just a few. Looking to watch some sport? Then head to Auestadion which is a multi-use sports stadium which generally plays host to football matches. This stadium is home to KSV Hessen Kassel which is a German Association Football Club that was founded in 1893

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.
