Hertz in Hannover

There are a number of Hertz branches for car rental in Hannover, including one at Hannover-Langenhangen Airport and one at Hannover Railway Station. This makes it very simple to pick up your car no matter how you arrive in this busy city. Whether you’re in town as a tourist, or here to attend one of the many expos held every year, driving is by far the most flexible way to see Hannover.

Renting a car allows you to explore Hannover’s many attractions with ease, and it also lets you explore a little further afield too. Car lovers can drive for less than an hour to Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen to take in the history of Germany’s iconic car manufacturer, or fans of storyteller Baron Munchhausen can drive out to nearby Bodenwerder to visit his home. Within Hannover itself, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained, including The Great Garden of Herrenhausen, Castle Marienburg, and Hannover Zoo - one of the best in Europe.

Driving and Parking in Hannover

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 25 to rent a car in Hannover, or over 21 if paying an age differential charge. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Hannover, take a look at our page about renting a car in Germany.

Before driving in Hannover, or anywhere else in Germany, make sure you are well acquainted with the rules of the road. In Germany, you drive on the right and pass on the left, but you may see “no overtaking” signs around. This means that it is forbidden to overtake a vehicle with more than two wheels. So, a car would be allowed to overtake a motorbike, but a motorbike could not overtake a car. Right of way is given to vehicles approaching from the right, and this goes for traffic on a roundabout too, unless signs say otherwise. The German police will impose and collect on-the-spot fines where they see traffic violations, so be sure to stay within the rules.

When parking your in Hannover, you may be best looking for public car parks, rather than on-street parking. On-street spaces are very limited, particularly when exhibitions are taking place. Prices for parking are reasonable, and start from around €2 per hour.

Driving in and around Hannover

Key Routes

Three major highways run through the centre of Hannover, connecting with various parts of the city and allowing you to bypass much of the traffic — although you will often find congestion during the busy rush hours in the morning and early evening.

Messeschnellweg takes you down the east of the city, with easy access to Hannover Zoo. Westschnellweg, on the other hand, covers the west of the city, taking in attractions such as Sea Life Hannover and Großer Garten. Sudschnellweg runs across the south of Hannover, helping you cut across the citycentre as quickly as possible.

Major Highways

Hannover is one of Germany’s major hubs for the Autobahn, with the A2 and A7 both intersecting with the city. If you want to explore Germany further, the Autobahn is fantastic, with the A7 running from Hamburg to Kassel, and the A2 running between Berlin and Düsseldorf. Both also connect with other parts of the Autobahn network. Although the Autobahn generally does not have speed limits, drivers should be aware that some sections do have posted or variable speed limits, particularly where the Autobahn runs through built-up areas. Violating these will incur a penalty, so be sure to check local signs.
