Worms is one of the towns that claims to be the oldest in Germany, along with Trier and Cologne. It is on the Rhine river, less than an hour away from Frankfurt. Worms is famous for being part of the Nibelungleid, a piece of German folklore in poem form, and many of the events mentioned in it took place in Worms. The town also produced Liebfraumilch wine, and has an industrial centre which manufactures chemicals and metal ware. Its proximity to Frankfurt - only 4 miles - may tempt you to take up a car hire in Worms and drive out for an afternoon's shopping. Hiring a car in Worms will afford you the freedom to explore this varied town.
Worms is the location for many events in the Niebelungleid - a long poem in Middlle German - a piece of work which would inspire Wagner's Ring Cycle and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. The Nibelung Museum in Worms opened in 2001, and is a multimedia tribute to the epic poem. The city also has a Romaneque Cathedral which dates back to the 12th century, but was reconstructed between 1886 and 1935. A common comment from people who have visited Worms is that they should have given more time to exploring the city.

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.
