Straubing is a lively city in Lower Bavaria, a state found in the south of Germany. The Romans occupied the area for 4 years, and as such a lot of Roman artefacts can be found in Straubing's Gäubodenmuseum which attracts many visitors in search of knowledge about how the area has thrived. The city is dedicated to maintaining the medieval style of architecture which lives on today.
August is a good time to visit Straubing, as a huge fair called the Gäubondenvolksfest is held every year. The city also enjoys its connections to three major highways, so hiring a car in Straubing is a good way to see Bavaria.
Straubing has a lot of beautiful gothic buildings to see, but this is not all there is to the city. Sports fans can take in a game of ice hockey - Straubing is the home of the Straubing Tigers, who are in the top league in Germany - or American football.
Although the city may look old, it's easily accessible by car - hire a car in Straubing and take in the beautiful buildings that lend the city its medieval air. The Romanesque Church of St. Peter was built in the 12th century, and is a tribute to the city's Roman occupation.

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.
