Schwedt an der Oder is now a National Park town, close to the banks of the Oder River, and the Polish border. Schwedt was an industrial town, and therefore doesn't have as many large pedestrian-only zones as some German towns, so if you hire a car in Schwedt then there is plenty to get around and see.
There has been a settlement on this site since the 6th century AD, and the area has a number of beautiful churches, and a tobacco museum. The old gasworks have been converted into a hot baths, and part of the old city wall still stands today.
Because of the city's industrial past, getting around by car is easy, and hiring a car in Schwedt will give you more sight-seeing options. There are some wonderful buildings in Schwedt itself, but just outside is the National Park, which has 60km of beautiful countryside.
There are also the ruins of an ancient castle, built in the early 14th century, built to protect the border between Brandenburg and Pomerania. The town also has several Baroque sculptures, and a Jewish baths. The different parts of the town are quite spread out, so car hire in Schwedt is a good idea if you want to make the most of it.

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.
