Mannheim is a city in the south west of Germany in the region known as Baden-Württemberg. The city is a modern commercial hub and a vital juncture at the heart of Europe. Mannheim contains a first class concert and sports venue, award- winning parkland, and strikingly modern architecture, alongside a history of innovation - names like Karl Benz being former inhabitants. For those who hire a car in Mannheim, Heidelberg is less than 2km away and the French border is less than an hour due south. Hiring a car in Mannheim is available from pickup points at both Kallstadter Strasse and Voelklinger Strasse.
Mannheim, the home of the first ever car journey, is a vehicle friendly city. Major attractions such as the Technoseum have plenty of free parking and if you plan on hiring a car in Mannheim you might well take a trip to Heidleberg, which is less than a 20minute drive on the A656. Ludwigshafen is right across the river on the B37 and home to the famous Rhein Galerie shopping centre. Park and ride places are abundant around the mall.

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.
