Merseburg is situated in the Saxony-Anhalt region of Germany, and is home to the ancient pagan documents the Merseburg Incantations. These transcripts are one of the oldest surviving copies of Early High German, reflecting Merseburg's important strategic position amongst Roman and early Germanic cultures. The incantations are kept in the Meseburg Cathedral and Palace whose buildings blend together wonderfully on the banks of the Saale. Car hire in Merseburg is popular as you're surrounded by cities such as Leipzig and Halle, as well as some spectacular countryside drives in the fairy tale wonderland that is the Harz Mountains.

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.
