Hertz in Stuttgart

Whether you’re in Germany for business or pleasure, Hertz makes car rental in Stuttgart simple, with branches at key locations such as the airport and Stuttgart Main Railway Station, as well as within the city itself. So no matter whether you’ve just landed, stepped off a train or have been in Stuttgart a few days, you’ll be able to rent a car in order to explore this automobile-centric city.

Stuttgarters are passionate about their vehicles, with both Porsche and Mercedes-Benz having their HQs in the city. Both companies also have car museums in Stuttgart - perfect for tourists with a need for speed. The city is well served by the Autobahn and other major highways, making it idyllic for those who love driving and want easy access to the different neighbourhoods.

Driving and Parking in Stuttgart

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

As with any major city across Europe, try to avoid driving in Stuttgart’s rush hour periods if you can — this is generally 7.30am to 9.30am and 4.30pm to 6.30pm. Stuttgart, like many German cities, operates Emissions Control regulations, meaning all vehicles in these areas must display an emission control sticker. Renting your car with Hertz means your vehicle will be pre-fitted with this sticker.

If you need to drive into the city, it can be helpful to use the Park and Ride services on the outskirts. These are cheap to use and will save you time sitting in a traffic jam. If you are parking within Stuttgart itself, there are plenty of parking options, including public car parks (charging between €1 and €2.50 per hour) and on-street parking. On-street parking uses parking meters and offers a variety of limited and unlimited spaces.

Driving in and around Stuttgart

Key Routes

When you rent a car in Stuttgart, you’ll find that most of the main routes into the city link with a central ring road that in turn connects with the city’s principal areas. It’s the best way to get to some of Stuttgart’s most popular sights and attractions, including Wilhelma - the city’s huge zoo and botanical gardens — and Universität Stuttgart.

Car lovers should check out Mercedesstraße, which, as the name suggests, leads to the Mercedes-Benz Museum and Mercedes-Benz Arena. Schwieberdinger Straße, on the other hand, takes you to Mercedes’ arch rivals, the Porsche Museum.

Major Highways

Stuttgart is well served by the legendary Autobahn, giving easy connections with other German cities such as Munich, Frankfurt and Nuremberg. If you have never driven on the Autobahn, there are a few rules and regulations to bear in mind:

• Some stretches do not have speed limits, but others (particularly in built-up areas) have rigorously enforced restrictions, so do make sure you pay attention to local signs.
• It is forbidden to pass on the right. Slower vehicles are expected to move to the right lane so that faster ones can pass safely.
• Never tailgate as this is treated very seriously by German police. Keep at least two chevrons between yourself and the vehicle ahead of you at all times.
• If your car breaks down or is involved in an accident, move to the hard shoulder and place a warning triangle 200m from the scene so approaching traffic can see.
• It is illegal to make an unnecessary stop on the Autobahn. This includes running out of fuel, which is regarded as a ‘preventable breakdown’.
