Hertz in Berlin

Car rental in Berlin is easy thanks to the many Hertz branches located in the city and at its airports. The German capital is a huge city — the largest in the country — and is divided into distinct zones each with their own cultural identity. To get round everything in one trip, hiring a car is essential so that you can reduce the time spent getting to places and take the tour at your own pace.

Berlin has a rich history and, as such has a hugely varied cityscape, with surviving medieval buildings standing close to contemporary examples. Those interested in history are spoiled for choice with an enormous range of museums to visit, while families will be keen to check out the parks, lakes and, of course, the zoo.

Driving and Parking in Berlin

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Berlin. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Berlin, take a look at our page about renting a car in Germany.

Driving in Berlin is very similar to driving in most major European countries. Rush hour periods get very busy and congested but, outside of these, it’s fairly easy to get around. In general, Berlin’s citizens are conscientious road users and obey the rules, which is always helpful when driving in a strange city!

To drive in the centre of Berlin, your car needs to be fitted with an environmental badge as the centre is an Environmental Zone. If you are renting your car with Hertz in Germany, your car will already have this and will be ready to go.

There is plenty of parking in Berlin so it will be easy to find a space if you rent a car in Berlin. In the metro area, however, parking is expensive and spaces are more limited so it can be worth leaving your car on the outskirts of this zone and walking or using public transport to get into the centre. Parking is a mix of multi-storey car parks and city centre parking zones.

Driving in and around Berlin

Key Routes

There’s so much to see and do in Berlin that it’s difficult to pick out one or two key routes. Mühlenstraße is well worth a drive for history buffs as you can see a section of the Berlin wall still standing for street art, known as the East Side Gallery.

On the other side of the river, Ebertstraße, a beautiful tree-lined drive next to Tiergarten is also worthy of note thanks to the stunning views it provides of Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building.

Major Highways

Berlin is well linked to the rest of Germany by the Autobahn, renowned for its fast speeds the world over. However, contrary to popular belief, the Autobahn is not without speed limits, which are, in fact, between 80 and 130km/h (50-80mph) on some stretches of road. These limits usually are applied to particularly dangerous areas of road or places affected by poor weather conditions. It’s against the law to stop without good reason on the Autobahn so make sure you have plenty of fuel and your car is in good condition before you set off.

When you rent a car in Berlin, you will also come across the ‘national roads’ or Bundesstraßen. These link built-up residential areas and cities to the Autobahn, enabling quick, efficient journeys.
