You'll find Kristinehamn's old central rail station on Stationsgatan just north of the city centre. There's a tree-lined area in front of the station for buses, bikes, taxis and car parking. If you arrange to pick up a hire car here you'll find that the station access road leads directly towards the city centre and crosses the Karlstadsvägen dual carriageway. This major road in turn enables quick road access to the E18 highway running across the north of the city and provides easy driving links to the cities of Karlstad and Örebro.
Kristinehamn is positioned on Lake Vänern, one of the biggest inland waters in Europe. The city grew as a port and is located where two rivers reach the lake. You can easily tour this watery landscape if you collect a hire car in Kristinehamn. The best-known sight is Picasso's landmark statue. It's 15-metres-high and stands on the shore of Vänern. Other attractions near Kristinehamn include the Järsberg Runestone, a red granite column decorated with Viking carvings dating as far back as the 6th-century. And Alvön, the eastern island known for its excellent walking trails.

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.
