Driving in and around Berlin

An aerial view of the Berlin skyline with the famous TV tower and Spree river at sunset.

Whether you arrive in Berlin by plane, by train or having driven from another city, you’ll find it a busy but relatively easy city to drive in.

Berlin is home to six million people, so the roads can be crowded, but road systems are orderly, well-signposted and German drivers are generally polite and safe.

There are plenty of cycle routes in the center of the city, and cyclists have right of way. Speed limits will be clearly marked – in built up areas the limit is generally 50kph (around 30mph).

Outside of the city, the main freeways connecting cities are known as autobahns and they have no actual top speed limit, with a recommended maximum of 130kph.

Parts of the autobahn will have speed restrictions, however, and you’re expected to drive below this limit if conditions are wet or visibility is poor. Seatbelts are compulsory for the driver and all passengers.

With so many cars on the road, free parking is very difficult to find in Berlin, so you’re advised to make use of parking garages and lots.

Berlin is well-connected, as befits a capital. Head south-west on the A9 to visit Leipzig, home to one of Europe’s best zoos, while driving south to Dresden on the A13 will take around three hours.

The capital of Saxony, its elegant skyline has been painstakingly restored after the city was pretty much destroyed in World War Two.

The A24 takes you north-west to Hamburg, and you can plot a perfect road trip from there that plunges south-west on the A1 to Bremen, Munster, Dortmund and the Gothic splendor of Cologne in Germany’s far west.

A quick guide to Berlin

The national flag of Germany flutters from the top of the Reichstag Building in Berlin.

Berlin isn’t just a city that comes alive in summer – although that’s certainly a great time to visit – and in some ways there’s something deeply atmospheric about visiting the epicenter of the Cold War in winter, when you can see your breath curl away in the night and imagine you’re a spy. Dive right into the rich history of this pulsing city.

Walk the wall 

You can get a sense of its scale and the role it played in the day to day lives of people on either side at the Berlin Wall Memorial (Gedenskatte Berliner Mauer). Here you’ll find the final standing piece of the wall, as well as an exhibition that gives an impression of the fortifications, along with a viewing platform.

Visit Checkpoint Charlie on the corner of Zimmerstrasse and Friedrichstrasse to see the famed crossing point, a scene for attempted escapes across the border both in real life and movies.

The Platz to be 

Alexanderplatz plays such a large role in the life of Berliners that most of them just call it ‘Alex’. The largest public square in the city, it’s a heaving place full of transport hubs, but also a place to take the pulse of the capital.

Many of Berlin’s finest attractions are a short walk away, so park up your rental car and explore on foot.

The 368-meter-tall TV Tower looms over the square, with a viewing platform open to the public at the very top. Book ahead to skip the lines.

You’re only steps from the Rotes Rathaus (the City Hall), and the iconic Brandenburg Gate, finished in 1791. The Gate was inaccessible to the people during much of the Cold War, and it reopened in 1989 as a symbol of freedom and unity.

Cross to Museumsinsel – the Museum Island – a UNESCO World Heritage site that houses five museums. You’ll find the Pergamon, Bode, Neues, Alte Nationalgalerie and Altes Museums here, spanning thousands of years of history.

Highlights include the bust of Queen Nefertiti in the Neues Museum’s incredible Egyptian collection, while elsewhere on the island you’ll find Roman, Greek and Etruscan antiquities, Renaissance art and more recent acquisitions. You can easily spend a whole vacation here.

Finish your museum tour by seeking out the stunning Jewish Museum, designed by Daniel Libeskind to resemble a Star of David torn apart by an explosion. Close by is the 19th century Neue Synagogue with its golden dome, and the Holocaust memorial.

Park Life 

Even if you’ve visited all those concrete blocks above, you’ll have noticed what a green city Berlin is, dotted with parks and outdoor spaces. The 520-acre Tiergarten is the city’s green heart, a great place to wander, stop for a coffee, idle by a lake, see a concert or visit the numerous memorials inside.

Nearby Potsdamer Platz is where the British, Russian and American sectors all met during the Cold War, while just outside the city to the south-west sits the Grunewald Forest, perfect for a day trip.

Lakeside beaches, wonderful views, abandoned buildings and memorials, historic restaurants and more are crammed into this wonderland – once the preserve of Berlin’s rich, it’s now deeply democratic.

A city with its past running throughout it, but given exuberance by the young people who flock to it, Berlin is a city of hope. Car rental in Berlin will allow you to explore its many fascinating districts and unlock the door to all of Germany beyond it.
