Potsdam is one of Germany's most famous cities, as the capital of Brandenburg and host to the famous Potsdam Conference following WWII. The city is home to an extraordinary amount of lakes, rivers and green spaces, lending the city a laidback cosmopolitan feel. Potsdam's stately architecture reflects how popular it was with kings and the wealthy from years gone by - of which the Sanssouci Park and Palace are probably the most renowned. Car hire in Potsdam is popular as Berlin is a close commute, along with the enticing wider Brandenburg state. Car rental in Potsdam is available from the city centre and various other pickup points throughout Berlin.
Potsdam is closely connected to Berlin due to the fact that Germany's capital is just a 30 minute drive on the A115. Potsdam is obviously less visited than Berlin, but it's nonetheless highly popular due to its notable array of attractions. The Sanssouci Palace and Park are not to be missed, and the picturesque Schloss Cecilienhof was the site of the famous Potsdam Conference. Head for the Alter-Markt for a taste of the Old Town, and have a look at UNESCO listed Alexandrowka - a quaint Russian colony displaying Russian architecture. Potsdam's attractions tend to be spread throughout the city - the Schloss Cecilienhof is about 5-6km drive on the B1 - so hiring a car in Potsdam is popular.
If you rent a car in Potsdam you'll also have access to Berlin - home to the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, Pergamon Museum of Ancient History, Tiergarten, Checkpoint Charlie, and the iconic Berlin TV Tower, providing magnificent views across the city. Meander across both sides of Berlin - East and West - and notice the still existing differences in architecture, amenities, and ways of life. Hiring a car in Potsdam means that Berlin's neighbouring city becomes useful both as a base from which to discover Brandenburg, and as an alternative venue to the capital in its own right.

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.
