You'll find Motala's old Central Station on Platensgatan just to the east of the town centre. The station building faces the small ‘railway' park in front along with an area for buses and taxis, and there's a car park to the side. Just behind the station is the Motala Ström waterway that forms part of the Göta Canal system that runs through the heart of this southern Swedish town. If you hire a car from Motala Station, you'll find the station access road leads right to the important Vadstenavägen Bridge giving access to all areas of the city. The R50 north-south route is close by too.
Motala stands on the eastern shore of Lake Vättern and has been an important inland port on the Swedish canal system. Today the Göta Canal is mainly a tourist attraction, with trips in historic steamboats through picturesque locks and unspoilt countryside. If you hire a car at Motala Station though, it's easy to explore the city by road. Look out for the Motor Museum, which displays all sorts of technological items from the last century and the old whitewashed stone church, dating back to the 13th century. The town's museum is housed in the pretty Charlottenborg Manor amongst the trees on the shore of the Motala Ström.

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.
