Kalmar's Central Station is a good introduction to the city. The grand old cream-painted station stands in a neat cobbled square facing a leafy park. On one side are the old docks, now a lively waterfront leisure area, on the other are the green banks of the Kalmar Strait, home to the city's art museum. If you arrange to collect a hire car from Kalmar Railway Station you'll find you are immediately on a road leading to the heart of the city a few hundred yards away. Turn the other way and you'll be driving towards the airport and the E22 motorway.
If you hire a car at Kalmar Railway Station, it's easy to tour Kalmar's attractions, including the fairytale like Kalmar Castle and the prominent cathedral standing in the main square. You can explore the old quarter, navigating the narrow streets to see the idyllic houses and stunning views of the castle. If you transport yourself a little further, there are beaches and the gate to the city, Västerport. The Oland Bridge leads across the four-mile-wide Kalmar Strait to the popular tourist attraction of Oland. The island is renowned for its unspoilt habitats, ancient castles and traditional farms and has been designated a World Heritage site.

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.
