Wittenburg is one of the main tourist destinations in Saxony, due to its being the home of the monk Martin Luther. It is next to the river Elbe, and two of its historical buildings have been put on the UNESCO World Heritage List - both the home of Martin Luther and the home of Melancthon, who was another prominent church figure.
Wittenburg also has a massive industrial park, which houses the chemical company SKW Stickstoffwerke Piesteritz GmbH. It is surrounded by wonderful countryside, which also houses numerous spa towns, and car hire in Wittenburg will allow you to travel around a bit. Hiring a car n Wittenburg is also the best way to explore the surrounding areas, away from the tourist hubbub.
Wittenburg, which is formally known as Lutherstadt after the monk Martin Luther, is a well-established tourist centre, so there is plenty to keep you entertained. Martin Luther's house, the Lutherhaus, in which he lived with his wife and family, has been amazingly preserved, and should be near the top of your list of things to see when hiring a car in Wittenburg; the Schlosskirche is also very impressive, and dates back to 1496. The spa town of Bad Schmiederburg is a short drive away, so you can rent a car in Wittenburg and take a break from all the sight-seeing and unwind in the baths.

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.
