Hertz in Frankfurt

Frankfurt – or Frankfurt-on-the-Main to give it its full name – is Germany’s high-powered finance and business centre, home to one of the world’s largest stock exchanges and the headquarters of the European Central Bank. This city of glass, steel and concrete skyscrapers is an awe-inspiring sight and hosts some of the world's most important trade fairs and attracts thousands of business travellers every year.

Scratch beneath the ultra-modern skyline, however, and there’s even more waiting to be discovered. In the shadow of the skyscrapers sits a tantalisingly traditional city full of charm, boasting great appeal for visitors, especially in the medieval Altstadt (old city) complete with its half-timbered buildings. This friendly and relaxed city is a must for shopaholics and foodies, as well as being home to the best collection of museums in Germany outside Berlin.

We have several pick-up locations for hiring a car in and around the city, including at the airport, allowing you the opportunity to explore many wonderful old towns in Hesse and the neighbouring state of Baden-Württemberg,as well as the spellbindingly beautiful Rhine Valley.

A quick guide to Frankfurt

Frankfurt may be best known as the birthplace of Germany’s greatest writer, but there's more to the city than Goethe. Germany’s financial and business hub has played a key role in the country’s history and has many fine old buildings to prove it. It’s also a city of reinvention, with a new generation making their mark on this city.

This old heart

The Römerberg is Frankfurt’s grand old central square, seen at its very best during the city’s Christmas market in December. The square is lined with beautifully ornate gabled half-timbered buildings, rebuilt after the Second World War, the most notable of which is the iconic Römer, the city’s town hall since 1405. Nearby is the circular St Paul's Church (Paulskirche), which hosted the first German National Assembly after the March Revolution of 1848, as the country took its first tentative steps towards democracy.

A short walk from here is the soaring Gothic St Bartholomew's Cathedral (Kaiserdom) where kings were elected and emperors crowned over 450 years. Close by, the Goethe House and Museum stand on the site of his birthplace. The 17th century building, destroyed by bombs in the Second World War, has been faithfully restored.

High society

One of the tallest and most distinctive of Frankfurt’s many skyscrapers, the Main Tower, looms high over the city, some 200 metres above street level. Soar to the top of the observation platform, situated on the 56th floor and reached by lift in a mere 45 seconds. It’s surrounded by the skyscrapers that inspire Frankfurt's nickname of ‘Main-hattan’. Atop this forest canopy of business, you can enjoy unrivalled views of the entire city far below. Watch Frankfurt stretch out in front of you and marvel at the pace of life passing by. Make sure to stop off for a spot of lunch to accompany your fantastic vistas at the 53rd-floor restaurant, or enjoy refreshments at the cocktail lounge next door.

City of culture

Frankfurt has more than its fair share of museums and galleries, including the MMK (modern art), the Liebighaus (sculpture) and the Schirn (modern and contemporary exhibitions). If you only have time for one, though, make it the Städel, which showcases art from the Middle Ages to today. Founded in 1815, this world-renowned art gallery has an outstanding collection of European art from masters including Dürer, Rembrandt, Rubens, Renoir, Picasso and Cézanne, as well as contemporary works by the likes of Francis Bacon and Gerhard Richter.

A Rhine romance

Make the most of Frankfurt’s geographical location and use it as a launch pad to explore the many historic towns and cities of the Rhine Valley. Just 44km west is the old cathedral city of Mainz, with a rich heritage dating back to Roman times. This is best seen in the excellent Roman-Germanic Central Museum and the Museum of Ancient Navigation, with stunning full-scale replicas of Roman galleons. Across the Rhine from Mainz stands the impressive city of Weisbaden, the state capital of Hesse. It’s one of Europe's oldest spa towns, with many of its hot springs still flowing today. South along the Rhine is the picturesque town of Worms, one of the oldest in the country, famous for its spectacular 11th-century Cathedral of St Peter.

Study in perfection

Further south from Frankfurt, on the banks of the Neckar River in the state of Baden-Württemberg, is the perfectly-preserved city of Heidelberg, home to the oldest university in Germany. It’s a popular destination due to its magnificent hilltop castle and the beautiful baroque buildings that line the streets of the Old Town. Whether it’s at the beginning or end of your visit, car hire in Frankfurt will truly allow you to delve into every nook and cranny of this wonderful area.

Driving in and around Frankfurt

Situated at the heart of both Europe and Germany, and home to Europe’s fourth busiest airport, Frankfurt is an important traffic hub and has excellent road access to all parts of the country. If flying in, you can collect your hire car at Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport, 20 km south-west of the city centre, via the A66 and A5. The A66 continues west past the airport turn-off to Weisbaden, a 30-minute drive, and then meets the A643 which runs south across the Rhine to Mainz, which is 40 minutes from Frankfurt.

From Mainz it’s only 45 minutes south on the A63 and A61 to the historic town of Worms, on the banks of the Rhine. You can reach the beautiful old city of Heidelberg by heading due south on the A5 from Frankfurt. The A5 continues south to Freiberg, gateway to the scenic delights of the Black Forest.

Frankfurt’s old town is compact. On-street parking in the centre is quite limited, so if you’re parking in the city it’s advisable to use one of the well-signposted car parks or one of the park-and-rides that circle the city and are cheap, or even free, to use.

Driving in Germany is on the right, as it is throughout mainland Europe. The speed limit on motorways (autobahns) is 130 km/h though it’s important to note that many parts of the Autobahn have no actual top speed limit, which is indicated by a circular white sign with five diagonal black lines. On main roads the limit is 100 km/h and on urban roads it’s 50 km/h. Seatbelts are essential for all, while children under 12 must use a child seat or restraint. Our local branch team will be able to help you with any specific queries you may have about driving rules in Germany.
