The industrial city of Södertälje stands 19 miles south west of Stockholm and is connected to the Swedish capital's public transport network. This is the country's famed Lake District, however, and despite the presence of major companies like truck-maker Scania, the city's location is very attractive. Hire a car in Södertälje to fully appreciate how it stands at the foot of an inlet in Lake Mälaren at the entrance to a canal that connects to the Baltic Sea. Visitor highlights of the area include the waterside stately home and gardens of Tullgarn Slott and the Marcus Wallenberg-hallen museum tracing the long history of Scania trucks.
The busy modern city has plenty of attractions for visitors. Rent a car in Södertälje to fully explore the city. Start with Torekällberget, an all-year open-air museum of both urban and rural lifestyles through history, including lots of farm animals and great views over the rest of the Södertälje. Boat trips are popular from the waterfront and the most memorable day trips are on one of the historic steamboats like Ejdern. The quirkiest attraction is the Tom Tits Experiment, housed in a large city centre building. It's a popular interactive science discovery centre for all ages that's both fun and educational.

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.
