Stuttgart is a city which dates back to around the 1th century. It has grown into one of the largest cities in Germany, and its main industry is manufacturing cars; and not just any cars either.- Posche and Mercedes-Benz are based in Stuttgart, and there are museums dedicated to both companies in the city. Hire a car in Struttgart and enjoy the views of this incredible city; while driving around can be a little confusing at first, hiring a car in Stuttgart is still recommendable. There are lots of day trips that can be made from the city - and as the taxi's are very expensive, it's the cheaper way to get around.
As Stuttgart is close to several major roads, it's easy to get out to other places if you're hiring a car from Stuttgart. The Mercedes and Porsche museums are on streets that are named after them, so those are easy to find if you''ve never driven in Germany before. Stuttgart is big on museums, and has museums dedicated to modern art, historical art, contemporary art, musical instruments and natural history. The museums are not all close together, so rent a car in Stuttgart and ensure you get around them all. The Natural History museum is not unlike the one in London, and has exhibitions about both evolution and archaeology.
Stuttgart has its own airport, and most airlines, including low-cost airlines fly there directly. If you hire a car from Stuttgart airport, then once you're settled in you can take a day trip to Zurich, which is less than two hours away. To the south of the city is the Black Forest, which has a very Brothers Grimm feel, and lots of old villages where you can buy souvenirs like proper German cuckoo clocks. If you drive west out of Stuttgart, then in less than two hours you can be in France, in the small city of Strasbourg for a day's shopping.

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.
