The tiny town of Markaryd stands in the province of Smaland in southern Sweden, very near the border with Halland and Skane. If you hire a car in Markaryd, you'll discover the town is surrounded by farmland and forests. It's a noted communications centre and stands on the main E4 route that leads down to Helsingborg and Denmark or up towards Stockholm. To the west is the historic village of Knäred where a stone commemorates a famous peace treaty between Sweden and Denmark in 1613. The stone is what the leaders lent upon to write their names.
Markaryd is an important spot in Swedish history, as it once stood on the border with Denmark and for centuries was an important point for transport and communications. The old red-painted post office building from 1862 has been preserved in the town to commemorate the postal heritage here. If you hire a car in Markaryd you can drive to one of the most popular family attractions in the region, just outside the town. It's called Smålandet Markaryds Älgsafari and allows visitors to drive through an enclosed two-mile forest road full with tame elk.

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.
